Moving to the Hickory Ridge village next month and looking for a great preschool for my daughter who will turn 4 in October. Basing this largely on recommendations since we will not have a chance to tour these before closing on our new house Sept 9th and we are moving from out of state.

-No home based centers
-Great structure (non-Montessori, it worked for my first but not for the 2nd)
-Under $1000/month full time or $600/month part time
-Co-op is doable but will be tough as I also have a newborn and cannot volunteer with the baby as some require.
-The closer to Clemens Crossing/Hickory Ridge the better

nobody knows of any great preschools?
I called Goddard and I was SHOCKED at how much they charge for full time preschool ($1500+ a month) so that is out of the question!
We did Childs Garden off Donleigh/Shaker for my elder daughter but I prefer something a bit more structured as the 3 year old is bit more lacking in the self-discipline category

A while ago I posted a list of co-ops in Howard County on this thread: //www.city-data.com/forum/maryl...c-options.html

When we moved here, the only other part-time reasonably priced options we could find were in churches. We had been in a preschool in a church before moving here. In my experience a lot of preschools are in churches partly because the space is available, and they can be pretty minimally religious (you can find out by asking or touring). I've heard good things about Glen Mar, and when our kids were that age we almost went with First Lutheran in Ellicott City but couldn't make the schedule work.
