Where Should We Go? Tell Us Which Preschool You've Chosen and Why

Choosing your child's first school can be a challenge. What Lakewood preschool did you pick and why?

When it comes to education, we all want the best for our kids, whether they are entering preschool or college.

That's why taking that first step and choosing a preschool for your child can be overwhelming.

There is a plethora of options in the University Place area. But, they are all different and sometimes it's the littlest touch that makes all the difference in choosing the perfect place.

Search a list of local preschools in our Patch directory.

So we ask, what local preschool did you pick for your child, and why? Share your stories in the comment section below.

Why did I have a feeling that someone from Sunset Christian would be one of the first to respond? Great job, Sunset Christian!

I chose Narrows Coooperative Preschool! 3 years ago one son attended and now my 2nd son is in the program. I really enjoy My involvement in my child's early development and the community that Narrrows provides. Peers for me to form lasting friendship bonds with and a fantastic enrichment program for my kids! And don't forget the best tuition costs in the area thanks to the Co-op model.

We love co-op preschools. We've gone to narrows co-op and loved it and now we're going to wapato co-op closer to our house. So far it's also been great. There's nothing better than being part of a community dedicated to the overall well being of your child. We get to know the children, the teachers, and the parents and really take part in our child's fundamental early learning. What is there not to love?

NARROWS CO-OP RULES!! Seriously, if you aren't interested in knowing what your kids are learning, then an expensive drop-off if your answer...BUT, if you want to be involved with your child's education, have a friendship with the teacher, SEE everything he/she loves to do, play and learn, be a part of a community of like-minded parents...then co-op, and specifically Narrows, is your only option! I can't wait to start the music class with my 3 year old this year. And-it doesn't matter that she's not potty trained either!

My two older sons, now 11 and 8, attended preschool at Narrow's Co-op and we are now enrolling my 3rd son there. We are still friends with the families that we met all those years ago! There are so many positive things that come from learning by play and having all the other families involved too. It's a shared experience and community that you don't get from a regular drop off preschool. We have done both and are back at the co-op. It really is something that both parent and child should experience!

And how could we forget Narrows Co-Op? Great job!
