Does sentience appear in the womb, at birth or during early childhood?
Well I would believe in the womb. i would believe in the womb as soon as life is created it chooses to live or die. It's aware of the outside world, can hear, and studies have shown music and other things work to make a child smarter.
I tried this myself while I was pregnant, and after he was born the first time i played the music, he turned his head towards that direction many times when I played it.
I would say in the womb to be onwards intellectually figured out.
I have yet to figure out if there is intelligent life on earth, my guess very few reach the condition of which you are questioning.

I would say in the womb, but the answer is subject to one's interpretation of the term "sentience". A loose definition would be "sensory awareness", which develops in the womb.
All living things possess some degree of sentience (awareness of self - they react to changes in their environment) - even microbes.
If people have an eternal spirit or soul a good bet would be it enters the fetus around the third week. Why? It would be rational that it would come into the body by some organ. The still, somewhat mysterious pineal gland begins to form at this time.Could the fetus then be sentient; maybe. Of course this only a speculation.
