I have had a very hard time trying to find information on pre-schools, daycares, and Pre-Kindergarten programs in the Park Cities area. (I do not want to call around and get on lists until I have a better time frame for my move.)
So, I decided to post what I have been able to find out, to help any future people looking. All of this info, I gathered from online sources. Please give additions/corrections! Also, if you have experience with any of these, or have other schools I left out, please add that as well!


Church Options:

Christ the King - I spoke with the Church Secretary (only place I have contacted directly.) They have nothing for children until Kindergarten.

Temple Emanu-El - Supposedly has programs, but their website needs to be updated. There is a mention in one paragraph about "3 and 4 year olds," but I have not been able to find any other info on what ages they work with, how many days a week, what times, etc. I guess you have to call the school.

Kindergarten: 9:30AM - 3PM or 8:30AM - 5:30 PM M-F
*No mention of lunch, but there is a list of what students bring snack that day? So, I am guessing no food is provided.

which one has the lowest tuition? I don't care what kinds of the teachers, but only want to find a place for my daughter to play with other children. Is there anyone who can give me some advice?
