I had anxieties about leaving the city too - I found out after moving my anxieties were unfounded

i'm looking to move to rye neck school district too and also stressed about babysitting. I have two children a boy who will be in kindergarten and a girl who will be 2. Its too expensive to pay for care for both but i have to work only part time. Its not fair that my friend who lives in a nice area in the bronx pays much less taxes can get free after school programs but in rye where you have to pay much more and everyone assumes you are wealthy they don't offer anything affordable to parents. They squeeze every last penny out of the middle class. I hope i can find a nice playmate for my son after school and possibly swap babysitting hours with another mom.

Heather -There's bound to be people in the same situation as you. Its just a matter of doing the legwork to find them, which will likely be easier when you are already there. I'd recommned at the various nusery schools/kindergartens and possibly the library as a start. Also when you move in get chatting to the neighbors and find out who has young'uns etc.

Default Saxon woods country.

I have heard great things about bright horizons.

I moved my child from Saxon woods country to Hudson country Montessori, where my other kids had attended nursery school. I didn't like Saxon woods at all! the schoool was dirty, there was nothing organized to meet other parents, no parent-teacher conferences (link Hudson has), my child was sick all the time, her was getting all possible viruses. They also say they do a home cooked meal for the kids, while all they do is give them frozen foods, like chicken nugets and pasta with ketchup!

Looked at Bright Horizons, Saxon Woods Country School, and Liberty Montessori so far. I have been trying to finds reviews on these schools but have not had any luck. Any help would be appreciated!

There is a nice nursery in lower Westchester county called Rosedale nursery but it is very pricey. I have made several online purchases but am looking for that "go to" local or semi local nursery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I live in Rye Neck and send both my children to Bright Horizons in White Plains. I love it. It is very educational, very organized and well run. However, it is very pricey. For both kids, we are paying 3800 per month full time. Once my daughter reaches preschool age it will go down to about 3200. I used to send my daughter to Kathy's Kids (in Rye Neck), an at home daycare. I loved that as well. They were very loving and nurturing. My daughter learned the alphabet and all of her colors before the age of 2. The problem with keeping her there was that the hours are only 730-5 and I could no longer leave work early to pick her up. It was cheaper at 1350 per month. Hope this helps.
