I am looking for the best daycare/preschool. I want a safe learning environment for my 3 year old daughter. We most likely be living in the Lexington area but I am willing to drive for the right school. We are moving from Ohio so I do not know the much about the area.

Lexington sucks, but in Lex, you might want to look at Lake Murray Child Development Center, Gateway, or Northside Baptist. I've heard good things about Covenant Christian in West Columbia and the Timmerman School in Forest Acres, which are in other parts of the metro.

I'd appreciate recommendations in the NE/Denstville part of town. We've been looking for a while but haven't found anything we love yet.

I have friends that have kids in both Northside Baptist's and Harvest churches daycare and they are both very complimentary of the programs. And since both of these are located in the Lexington area you know they are safe. My children were too old when we moved here for me to have any first hand experience but I can tell you that the schools in Lexington 1 are first rate and lots of folks move here to give their kids a positive educational environment.

Good luck on your move.

Anne Pitts Child Development Center. It's on Andrew Corley. They've been there for years. There is plenty of room for kids to run around and get dirty. It's a great place.

In Lexington we send our 2 year old daughter to Windsor Academy and really like it. They have an after school program as well that she'll transfer into once she gets to be that old (too soon!). My wife checked out reported incidents through some state agency and all the others in Lexington seemed to have serious issues (although the list was not specific). Windsor did have some issues but they were all paperwork related (instead of related to food prep, diaper changing area, etc).

If you or your spouse is a federal employee or military, Fort Jackon has two or three daycare centers available to you. You won't have to worry about security at all there!
