I am fairly new to to town and don't have a circle of friends to ask--what ARE considered the best preschools in town? I would prefer NOT to send my son to a church-affiliated preschool which seems to be so prevalent here. I live in the bee caves/westlake area, and am willing to travel a bit (within reason). I know I need to get his names on lists soon... Thank you in advance...feeling a bit lost in this arena : )
The University of Texas Child and Family Laboratory is the best preschool in Austin. It exists both as a school, and as a research and training facility for UT graduate students. Best practices for instruction and for the cultivation of a great classroom & social environment, and an extremely low student-teacher ratio. Classroom teachers are master teachers with many years experience. They are assisted by UT graduate students. It is a half-day program only, as its mission is to be a model preschool and it is not a daycare at all.

I would find the best one near you. This whole emphasis that you rich people are bringing with you from other places is killing us. It is not sustainable. Imagine if every parent of every 3 year old drove their kid to the best pre-school, we have commute issues here and traffic problems.

Your kid is 3! Don't be so dogmatic. Lets be practical and kind, take your kid to the nearest ok school, take a deep breath, relax, unwind, try and be less type A ok?

Maybe you could send your kid to your local, close elementary soon and just improve it into the school you want it to be? Instead of us looking for the best all the time. I mean I hear it every week now, where the heck you all come from?

Heck, maybe even as old as 10. I wonder if he survived his high-expectation childhood...?
