I'm moving to Mt Lebanon and I need to find a preschool for my 3-year old daughter. We're not really interested in an overly religious school or just a warehouse daycare. We need more of a preschool where she can go probably three days a week so she can get some non-mom stimulation and I can try and get my sanity back.

Any brilliant ideas?

The only pre-schools that I know of in the area are housed in churches.
The Mt. Lebanon United Presbyterian Church (at Scott and Washington Rds.) has a T/Th/Fr program in the mornings for three year olds...and has a great reputation. It's called Kingdom Kids.

ABC's for Children on Greentree Road is great. Christ Methodist Church on Highland Road in Bethel Park is great too. My kids have gone to both, and we really like both of them.

The Mt. Lebanon Montessori School has a great reputation for quality and excellence in education. Top notch. You won't be disappointed.

We investigated it when we thought we were moving to Pgh several years ago.

Default Too late, but...

I'm late to this, but I'm a long time resident and mother to 3 kids, elementary - college. Many of the nursery schools are church/synagogue based, but don't let that deter you as most take a non-denomination approach. Temple Emmanuel, Beth El, St. Paul's, Mushroom (Unitarian), come to mind. There are a few Montessori schools around (one near Borders Book Store in Bethel Park, 1 on Sleepy Hollow Rd and I believe one on Vanadium), so if you like that approach - explore those options. Kingdom Kids in the Methodist(?) church is decidedly more religious.

There are daycares, such as ABC's (previously mentioned) or Southminster Presbyterian (which also has a nursery school), which are more day care and less 1/2 day nursery school. You've probably already made a choice, but if you haven't you can pm me and I can help.
