I've been searching for the best pre-school for my 3 yr.old to start in August. I called Carolina Kids who charge $175/week and there are 215 kids and 30 teachers there!! That's A LOT of kids to manage, even for 30 teachers. Also, I noticed that a lot of the preschools start with infants of 6 weeks old?!? I would rather find a great preschool that has post-diaper/pre-kindergarten toddlers with nice teachers that care and actually teach -- does anyone have any recommendations? Even if it's a little out of the area, I would rather drive to a great school than put up with a crappy local school.

Does anyone have experience with Chesterbrook Academy? Thanks! Also, I prefer a "non-religious" school -- there seems to be tons of "bible schools" in this area.

Hi there! I wish you the best of luck in your search, I know it can be very stressful. I am new to the area so I can't make too many recommendations except to hurry up and get on waiting lists. Many of the preschools have very long waiting lists!!
I've attached the link that may be of assistance.

From reading other posts, I've heard positive things about:

St. Johns Preschool (waitlist)
St. Phillip Naziri (sp?)
Lake Wylie Lutherian
Harrison UMC in Pineville

I think Carolina Kids is meant as more of a daycare for working parents. That is why it is so pricey. It is actually one of the best in Fort Mill!

I also strongly recommend that you join YorkCountyMommies.com--York County, SC's Mom-to-Mom Connection. It is a very valuable resource of York County moms who will give you the scoop on everything, including Preschools!

Kids 'R' Kids is fantastic. My son has been there since it opened and loves it. They have great teachers and a good mix of academics and fun activities for the kids. I really love the interation between the teachers and the kids.

I have two neighbors whose children went to Leroy Springs and they absolutely raved about it. The one girl went for 1 or 2 years, but part time. She is in Kindergarten now and doing VERY well in school.

My now 6 year old son went to Leroy for 1 year, and my now 3 3/4 daughter goes to Leroy. She'll go there next year, and maybe 1 more year. It is the best money I have spent so far, fabulous teachers, loving environment, and a great headstart on life. They tend to have a waiting list, so apply early!

We use Pleasant Road Child Development Center. My son is now 2 and has been going there since he was 8 weeks. He has adored all of his teachers and still hugs them all (including the director) before we leave each night (that takes some planning when I'm in a hurry!!). The teacher of the 3's was his 2's teacher and she lives in Ft Mill. The class sizes are small and the staff turnover has not been much at all. I HIGHLY recommend them.
