  • My daughter attended preschool. What I really like about the school was they learn abc's, interacts, a lot of fieldtrips and programs on every occasion. Its awesome.

  • When I selected a preschool for my kids I first asked neighbors and friends in the area where they brought their children & why they chose that school. From that list the ones that stood out I made appointments with and visited. I kept in mind my kids individual needs and what I felt they would feel most comfortable with. The school I chose was not the fanciest, most expensive or the one that declared to stress education...the school I picked was the one that I felt had the most nurturing environment mixed with a good amount of learning. I decided a co-op preschool would work best for our family because I could attend and help out 1 time a month which in my opinion helped my kids adjust quickly to the school. Now both my kids are in this school and they both absolutely love it! It also has an open door policy so I can show up unexpected at anytime (and I do) and a very secure security system in place. good luck
