The director's name is Tara Rogers, and phone # is 704-849-0580. Goo Luck!
This! I put two of my kids thru their program, and they were great. Love Tara and the teachers.

Programs can start as early as toddlers (1 year) so it depends on the school. We got in "late" last year - the director mentioned that people move so spots sometime open up so it doesn't hurt to try and call around. Some ages are harder to get in than others, too. You may want to check out charlottemommies.com and join the south area group forum - as those are the mommies that live in that area (ballantyne) - not sure about matthews, but I know they have a forum too. They'll be able to give some advice too, sometimes even know if / where there are openings. They also have playdates and mom's nights and such so it may be a good site to check out regardless. Good luck with your move!

I saw a sign at Matthews Presbyterian this afternoon that said they offer mom's morning out and have some openings for preschool!
