My husband has been relocated and we are moving to the Downriver area for at least 12 months. I have two toddlers that will be 3 in May. They are in a 5-half day program now at a Presbyterian church where we live currently. It seems like every school I call wants them to be potty trained or 3 years old before October 1st. I am willing to drive 20-30 mins to take them to a really good school, where the student to teacher ratio is low and there is a nurturing environment with a focus on education. A religious program is not a must. What are the best private schools for toddlers in the Downriver area, or best childcare centers around?

I only know of three of them (on Grosse Ile). they are all supposed to be good. No idea about diapers. Also I do not know their names. One is called building blocks. It is on Macomb street. One is in the school administration building behind the middle school. I know the lady that runs that one, she is great. The other is on the corner of Grays drive and Parke Lane. That one would be a PIA to get to during part of the morning because you have to drive through the high school traffic.

When I think of it and see them, I will ask some of the young mothers I know who live downriver, but it could take a few weeks or months (assuming I remember at all). When our kids were itties, we had a doozy of a time finding any place that would take kids in diapers. the was one church that provided the service at a reasonable price as an outreach. They lost money on it. Mostly we had live in nannies, and later a friend who took care of kids in her home. She was not too expensive. Diaper care is very expensive because they have to have more caretakers per child.
