My little family will be moving to the Pioneer Valley later this spring. I'll be starting work in Springfield, and so we are looking at communities up and down the valley, convenient to 91. We hope to find an area that has good community and events for kids - library story times, parks, etc. Also, we will both need to work full-time so we are looking for leads on good places to for our kids, either daycare, or preschool for my elder. They will be 13 months and 3.5 years when we get there.
Please sing the praises of your area - help me to narrow my geographic focus! I would like to hear about anything that your toddler or preschooler likes about your town.
