thank you nonny.

there is already a nice inventory in place (especially if you compare to places like bronxville). can you share any specifics and would you advise for waiting vs. committing now? we did see a few houses we liked...

I am not under the impression that prices are going down. I think that they're going up, and think that it probably is a good idea to buy now. The reason that you may want to wait is to find a house that suits you best. I honestly don't think that you can go wrong anywhere in Pelham. The schools are solid. The commute is great --- better than Brooklyn for most of Manhattan. And, it's a good community with easy access to the rest of Westchester.

Getting a spot shouldn't be a problem at all. There are many really good neighborhood ones, which do a good job: Junior Wonders, Hugenot, and a Montessori. Your child will meet many classmates in these. Many children also go to Mt. Tom, which is bigger and has nicer grounds. (The others are housed in churches.) If you are interested in day care, Pelham Children's Center is good (but there may be a waiting list there). There are many others in New Rochelle and Bronxville. If you are serious about living there, join the Facebook Group, Moms of Pelham, and you can find lots of information there.

I happen to like Siwanoy the best as well. Smaller, like the location as well.
If you are considering Bronxville as well, there is the Sarah Lawrence early Childhood center which I know a few people have been very happy with and is well regarded.

Yes, but Sarah Lawrence Preschool is likely filled by now. It's hard to get into.

Hello - I saw your post responding to someone looking at Pelham. We are looking at Pelham, as well. I have a child with ADD and a 504 plan (providing accommodations). Do you have any idea how the schools in Pelham deal with kids that need additional support (totally mainstreamed and you wouldn't know there was an issue unless someone told you). Many thanks.

I am sorry, but I do not have any first hand experience with the schools yet. My child will be starting in September.
While conducting our researchof the area, the schools were very happy to accomodate us with an appointment to go tour the schools as well as talk with the principal about any questions we had.
This may be a hlepful way for you to talk about the needs of your child and see how he/she woudl be accomodated.
Also, perhpas you could contact someone from one of the SEPTA organizations at the schools? The school website would have the contacts for you to look into.
Hope those ideas help a bit!
