Hello,

We will be moving back to DC from Amman, Jordan this summer. We have two children, 3 and 1 year old. My husband will be working very near Tyson's Corner. Do you have a recommendation for a neighborhood and preschool for my three-year-old? We would like to be somewhere that has a bit of a town center and be close to the school without a ridiculous commute for my husband.

I looked at some preschools in McLean and the prices seem crazy to me! We are planning to rent a 3 bedroom place around $3000/month. I have seen Parkwood Preschool in Vienna mentioned several times but have been unable to find a website and the phone number listed online is to a personal residence. Is it still open?

All suggestions are welcome! Thanks so much.

Quick answer and I will respond later. Yes, Parkwood is still open. It is run by a woman who is 94 years old (yes I wrote that right!) who has been running the school for over 50 years. If you call, she will answer the phone. There is no website. Papers are still run off on the mimeograph machine (at least they were a few years ago). It is a sweet old-fashioned school. It is only part day, and is about $500 per month more or less depending on how many days you go. There are a few other preschools, I can recommend, but I have to run, so will write more later.
