It may be the loving teachers, the warm atmosphere, the experienced director, or the sunny rooms and fun playground.
But there is something about a beloved preschool that stays with us: The sweet children's art made around their handprints, the puppets and stuffed animals, the miniature kitchen, the dress-up clothes. But also the social skills and the educational building blocks that lay the foundation for a successful elementary school experience — and life — beyond preschool.
There are many preschools in Maplewood, South Orange, Millburn and beyond that represent the wonderful experience of early childhood education.
Share it with Patch during this week's "Readers' Choice" poll. If we've forgotten to list it, enter it in the "other" category. And be sure and comment and tell us why that school provides a wonderful experience for children. We will share the results with you on Friday, after the voting stops at 9 a.m.
Stay tuned and encourage your friends, neighbors, teachers, and fellow parents to vote!
