  1. There’s an excellent place right down the road from our house that we plan to take our son to when he’s older. It’s a preschool and family center using the Reggio Emilia philosophy to inspire learning.

  2. We have been very happy with a private pre-k program in our area that also combines gym/tumbling, art, and more. The director and teachers are super-loving and caring. I wish this kind of schooling continued into Kindergarten in our area but the options are limited. Thanks for sharing all the possibilities.

    • Crystal, that sounds like a well-rounded quality program. I love the extras that the program offers as well. It would be nice to see that same program continue into kindergarten. Have you mentioned that to the owners because I am sure that other parents feel the same way?

  3. I had NO idea there were so many options available. I’ve never heard of the Mothers Day Out or Legally Exempt options before.

  4. It’s so difficult finding and trusting the facility you leave your children with. So glad to see there are more options than there used to be.

  5. My kids are in public school but prior to that, they stayed home with me. I was never trusting of childcare providers.

  6. I live in the UK, and we have our little 2 year old in a nursery for 2 days a week and then 2 days with my parents! It’s nice seeing what other countries offer as well.

  7. Goodness what a vast choice to have. I used to own a children’s nursery and I often found that work and finances helped make the decision for many people. Within that they they looked for a safe and friendly environment within their range of choices.
