  • if they are registered w/your state, your state probably does an inspection at least yearly and then if there are complaints. i found a website for VA that had the results of all the regular inspections of the registered daycares/preschools, and any complaints that were filed. so maybe try to do a google search. if you can't find anything, ask the school if they can give you references (satisfied parents etc..) and if they can't do that, try to swing by around pick up and talk to some of the parents, make sure they are all happy w/the school

  • Also do a background check (yes pay for it) on the people who DO run the school- and all of the teachers or people who will come into contact with your little one. Make sure that the school has a background check policy AND find out if you and your little one can hang out all day (our school was TOTALLY open to that) and find out what the drop in policy is, make sure you can drop by ANY time....

  • Have you tried Greatschools.net. They have a lot of reviews for many pre-schools. You can search by that specific school or schools in your area.

  • you could also go to the parking lot around 5 pm or in the morning and talk to parents as they take their kids in or pick them up :) good luck!
