Default Moving to Arkansas

We are moving to Arkansas from Louisiana as soon as we can find a place that meets our criterias. #1 It has to be more than 50 miles from Fulton, AR (job site) but not so far that my husband is driving too far to get to and from work everyday. #2 Need to transfer my son to a new Pre-k. We want a school, that teaches i.e. numbers and letters not babysits i.e.daycare. We were looking in Arkadelphia but the only school I found is full with a waiting list. Help me find another town!

Have you looked at Hope? But that may be closer to Fulton than you would like to be. Also, (although it too is close to Fulton) I think you will have more options in Texarkana.

The pre-k programs are often all full at the beginning of the school year (i.e. right now), but sometimes they have openings as kids drop out a few weeks in. It doesn't hurt to get on the waiting lists of places you might be interested in.

You might check out both the Head Start and the ABC (Arkansas Better Chance) programs available in towns you are interested in. They both serve 3-4 year olds and are similar but Head Start is federally funded and ABC is funded by the state of Arkansas. They both have a curriculum that focuses on skills, not just a daycare.

Both programs are geared to low-income families but if you don't qualify on that basis they generally have some additional slots available. Also if your kid has any sort of "special need" he may qualify regardless of income.

Thank you both but we backed out of the job offer. Once my husband got with the HR dept. at Shaw, they had too many stipulations, there is a better oppurtunity out there that fits us.
