New mom looking for preschool recommendations
Hi my child is currently 18 months. We are starting to look for preschools and get onto waiting lists. There are so many options in the bay, I’m not sure where to start. I visited some Montessori’s, Bright Horizon-Bay Farm, language immersion in Berkeley and closer low-cost local preschools closer to my home. I’m in San Leandro. And I’m not sure how to decide. I’m mainly looking for a nurturing environment, low student to teacher ratio, low teacher turnover, age-appropriate curriculum and affordable/reasonably priced. I did not realize how some schools have very exclusive waiting list and specific enrollment priorities so I’m worried she won’t be able to get into anything by the time she is able to start or if we pick the wrong school. Can anyone provide some recommendations of the pre-schools they have been and loved dearly?
