Our Preschool Story
My sister and I joined forces when we started our preschool search. Big M and Cousin S would start at the same time and go to school together. Both of us have experience working in a childcare center and a home family childcare… we were excited to start combing through preschools. We were quickly snapped into reality when we realized it was going to be harder than we thought. There appeared to be a shortage of preschools (or quality ones anyway). YIKES!
We continued to follow the steps we knew would get us to the exactly the place we were looking for… and I am so glad we were patient.
