Does any one have recommendations for a nursery or preschool in the Silver Spring area? I don't really have the time to do a co-op preschool, unless there is minimal work and would really like to find somewhere where our pre-kindergartener will actually learn something and prepare for kindergarten -- in addition to playing. Although we live in Silver Spring, I would be willing to drive a distance, if if meant the school was better. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Where do you live in Silver Spring? That would probably help people give you suggestions. I know one family at Grace Episcopal near downtown SS, and they love it. I also know 2 families that have children at the Barrie School off of Layhill Rd. It's a beautiful campus, and they use a Montessori approach. These schools all have before care and after care and are not co-ops.

Many pre-schools may have filled up by now. Even if they are full, I'd still fill out an application to be put on the wait-list. You never know when a spot may open up.

Wonders on Chevy Chase Circle is moving to DC right across the line from Silver Spring next June. So you could get your kid in now at the CC location, and still be locked in when they get to SS. I'm pretty sure they have some slots open for less than 5-days/week. And I think there's generally better availability at age 4+.
