Hi - we just moved to the Edgemont school district and would appreciate some suggestions on pre-schools in the Edgemont or Scarsdale area. We are looking for a 3 day (morning?) schedule. We are open to nursery schools at churches.

As for age level, I think we are looking at 2 year old programs? My son has a January 2013 birthday, so he just turned 1. As a general rule, does anyone know if he would start the 2's program this year or next?

Surprisingly, I can't seem to find too much information, so would greatly appreciate any advice. Thanks so much!

There are tons in Scarsdale, but one I have personal experience with is the Hitchcock School at Hitchcock Church in Scarsdale (right near the Hartsdale train station). They are great but you'd have to ask if he could start the 2s program in September. I think most programs require the kids to actually be 2. They did used to have a programs for under 2s, which was 2 days a week, but I remember that it was always up in the air year to year going by demand.

Streetsmart - thanks so much for your advice. I will call and ask about starting the 2's program earlier. Any experience with whether kids at the younger range in the group were having difficulty or anything? Your advice is very much appreciated - thanks again!

Many preschools require kids to be 2 AND potty trained.

Oh...then maybe he would start next year. Thanks so much for the heads up AliciaN! Advice would still be appreciated, even if that means we would start in 2015! We can get an early start, and maybe an early-bird discount! heh

My sister uses Alcott and really likes them. They did not have to be potty trained, but you do need to be 2 to start.

Child Care Council of Westchester has a website with a search function - it's clunky, but they do have all NYS licensed facilities on there (including pre-schools).

Thanks so much ehmom. Alcott is actually one that I haven't come across in my seraches, so will have to check it out. Also will take a look at the Child Care Council of Westchester website. Thanks so much for the tips!!!

Thanks Streetsmart. Seems like another good choice. So overwhelming - there are so many out there! Do you have kids there now? Some reviews online say that it's gone a bit downhill? Thanks!
