I'm moving to Colleyville in the end of June and am in need of information on high quality preschools in the Colleyville area. I called a preschool referred to me by a co-worker called Creme De Le Creme which I was very impressed with from their website, but they could not even give a September entry date. My two older boys will be attending The Oakridge School in Arlington so I would prefer something in that general direction. Thanks in advance.

Are there many home based daycare's in the area? My wife does that here in Illinois. She just watches a couple kids plus our two. It allows here to stay at home with our boys but still bring in a small suplemental income. I'm just curious if she would be able to the same in the fort worth area or if it is taboo. It sometimes shocking to see the differences in beliefs and practices from one region to another so was wondering if anyone had any input.

Consider Barbara Gordon Montessori. My step-sister has sent her three children there over the last five years and they all love the preschool program. In Arlington, there is Country Day School of Arlington Montessori Preschool where my son attended about five years ago and it was great. However, I think Barbara Gordon will be more conveniently located.

tab - Just seen your message from months ago. We are moving to the area in the summer and are also looking at pre-k programs for our twin daughters, just wondering what you found. But also, I'm looking at The Oakridge School in Arlington for my older daughter. I noticed you mentioned your sons were going to attend the school. What do you think about it? Thanks.

The TCC's school has a waiting list years long

There is a preschool program in Colleyville called Highland Meadows that is NAEYC accredited. They actually register new children for fall today so I would hurry and call if you want in. The high quality schools usually have wait lists.

Hi everyone...we moved to the area a while ago and have found a couple of different place to check out. Reading Friends corner hwy 26 and Mid Cities (I think) is a wonderful place. It's only a part time, pre-school - not for working parents that really need full time care, but it's great. I put my daughter there because when we first moved here, I put her in Children's Courtyard and she hated it. Too many kids, too chaotic. Reading Friends is very structured with learning activities...they really get the kids ready for kindergarten. Only draw back is that they only offer 2 days a week for 2 year olds, 3 days a week for 3 year olds and 5 days for the pre-k kids. But they are fantastic and I'm very happy with them. I've checked out Creme in person and they are very nice, but also VERY expensive and full on. It looks good though, just not sure about it - the uniforms, the marching kids, just seems a bit too much! Also check out a World of Learning and Tutor Time in Colleyville. World of Learning is a part time place, but Tutor Time is full day. Good luck! Child care is a big juggling act!
