Our family is moving to Cburg in February and I am looking for some help on a few items related to our 2 children- ages 4 1/2 & 8 months. We are in need of babysitting for the 8 month old one day a week and are also looking for preschool for our 4 yr old or a few months until she starts Kindergarten. I research online, but many of the child care facilities online did not have websites with any information.

On the topic of schools, since my 4 yr old will be starting school in the Fall of 2012, which school is the best to enroll in? We are open to private or public....

Also- can anyone recommend a good pediatrician?

Thanks for your help

Wish I could make child care suggestions, but our youngest is well past that age. As far as private schools, there is Corpus Christi, Cumberland Valley Christian, and Shalom. Our daughter attended Shalom for awhile and it seemed fine. If you want to utilize public schools, it will depend on where you choose to live. Different people have different preferences--some like large, new school and others like small schools. I think, other than Stevens, they are probably fairly similar. Once your children get into Jr. High and High School, there are no choices because there is only one of each (well, technically the middle school now has a north and south location).

I do believe many people use private sitters in the area. I was surprised at how few really nice, large daycares there are here. When our youngest was younger, we looked at one place and she started crying and begged me not to make her go there If you are from somewhere else in PA, the age of the facilities may not shock you. I think they are just fine, but perhaps the buildings are a bit older than I was accustomed to.
