"The most useful tool out there for families about to embark on the search for a preschool!"

A must-have for parents of future preschoolers

Starting preschool is one of the biggest milestones in a child's life. With this comprehensive, step-by-step guide, you won't have to navigate the preschool process alone. Whether the nursery schools nearby enroll every child, or they're so competitive that they only accept a few applicants, this book has everything you need to know to choose and get into the right preschool for your child. You'll learn:

  • How to find high-quality preschools in your area
  • Insight into popular preschool programs (Montessori, Waldorf, play based, cooperative)
  • Key criteria to consider when choosing a preschool
  • Strategies for paying for preschool (financial aid, tax benefits)
  • How to help prepare your child for the first day of preschool
  • Advice for gaining admission into competitive programs, including getting off the waiting list, submitting a strong application, and preparing for a child assessment
