Hello Folks. My family and I are considering a temporary job in Helena, and I thought Id ask locals about childcare and preschool for my 3 year old daughter. Were looking for a place that can keep an active and creative kid engaged for 3 hours daily. If you have had experience with Helenas preschools, any feedback would really be appreciated. Were focused on helping her with this transition to a new community.

Additionally, Ive got a 4 month old infant, and am seeking playgroups for my 2 kids (the infant wont be talking for a few months, but is inclined to blurt out and babble frequently). Being new to Helena and arriving in the throes of winter (looking like late October or early November) Im not sure how much socializing will be happening at neighborhood parks for us to integrate in a more organic manner.

Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to comment off topic, as Im also seeking to get a feel of where to go / hang out with the kids, and to learn about parenting resources in the area. Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forum. I know nothing about kids activities in Helena but as far as the weather goes it may or may not be all that winter-like in those months, you can never really tell as the climate is changing world wide (always has and always will) and Rocky Mountain weather is very unpredictable . But those months are in in the fall and the "throes of winter" generally will be in January or February.
Hope you do well and it won't be long before someone who knows Helena will show up with some suggestions for you I am sure.
Visit us on the porch (lets Visit thread) We have fun there. While in Helena go see the civic center, it is a beautiful building and was designed to look a bit like a Muslim Mosque with prayer tower and all.
I have a story to tell about a craft show at that civic center that I may share later, most likely when I am visiting with all the other porch doggies !
