Hi there,

I am soon moving to Sarasota with my 2 little ones and am looking for some recommendations on community things. I don't expect recommendations on all of these, but if you have something related you'd like to share, that would be great!


- First off, I'm looking for both a Pediatric GI specialist and a regular pediatrician (one that's ok with a delayed vaccine schedule).

- I'm also looking for input on preschools (preferable not faith-based) in the area. I can access info on public schools, but not preschools.

- Also looking to find some places to go & things to do with the kids. We've been to the beaches, Mote, Spanish Point & Selby, but I'm sure there is so much to do there beyond these places. Are there many playgrounds around?

- Very importantly, I'm looking to meet other moms in Sarasota with toddlers/preschoolers. I'm a SAHM and am excited to meet new friends in the area! (We are hoping to move somewhere downtown, but haven't quite nailed that down yet....)


Thanks so much to anyone who replies!
