I'm looking to move to Lexington or Arlington in July. I have two kids.The first will be 4 by July 1st and the second becomes eligible for pre-school in Oct.Me and my wife work full time, so we need schools with after school care.

1) Is there a lexington public school that has Pre-k and/or a Pre-school(Harrington?)? What are the typical wait times?Considering that we will be moving in July 1st, how early can I expect to get my child enrolled in to a Pre-K/Pre-school?

2) I see that arlington has a pubilc school that has a pre-school/pre-K.Menotomy Pre-School? Any idea of how much time it takes if I get in to the wait list on July 1st.

Thank you for helping!

Hands down.... Lexington. Check out their budget for 2011 and you will see Arlington compared to them in the charts. Personally, I wouldn't go near a town with budget issues as big as Arlington's. This is personal, however, budget drives everything. Lexington has integrated programs that are excellent places for kids to be educated in preschool. They are very well staffed and the level of skill is extraordinary.
