Hello,

I appreciate any suggestions/recs you have.

Both I and DH WOH. DS (2 1/2) is in a home day care right now that I really like, that he has been in since I went back to work. In the next year, however, I would like to transition him somewhere where there will be more of a focus on 3 and 4 year old activities.

I would love for him to be in an environment with a small number other children (5 - 20), so, I'm very open to someone who has a home/residential preschool. However, I am also open to larger centers. It is just that my preference is for smaller.

We both work in Tysons, and we live in Reston, on the border with Herndon. So, I would like it be somewhere in either area or in between.

I'm open to various approaches or philosophies. I do not want a religious preschool.

Also, I've visited Reston Childrens Center. If anyone has thoughts on this place, that would be helpful.

So, if you've been, heard of, love somewhere, please let me know.

Thanks for taking the time to read and post.

Maybe Discovery Woods in Vienna?

Thanks, I've looked at their site before, their website shows quite a nice place. I'd noticed in the past, though, that it hasn't been updated since their 2006/07 year, and someone recently mentioned that they haven't been contacted after emailing/calling. I also saw that their blogspot blog only has entries to Dec 2006.

It sounds great, though. Another prohibitive piece is how much it costs. I need to be able to drop off between 7:15 and 7:45 and pick up between 4:45 and 5:15, M - F, and, from what I recall, DW was removed from our list of possibles way back when, once we worked out the cost. I can't remember their exact cost, but I do think my jaw dropped.

I really just feel in love with their website... they are too far for me, so never got around to computing the cost. Good luck!

Bumping this, because I'm still looking.
