from several books i have read seems they started as young as 3yo. learning only hebrew material. not sure but think the boy's family had to pay the teacher unless some special circumstance and others would pay . some travelled to find the best teacher.
try perusing through rashi's daughter where they describe the rabbi teaching the boys. also a new book about Shira ....I will get the title which escapes me at moment.
students had to go to regular school for 3 r's unless home schooled by someone (women weenot allowed to be trained ,unenlightened times)
