Hi all,

 

I'm going to be moving to the DC area soonish (within the next month or so) for a job.  I'll need childcare for my 2.5yo son.  I'll be looking in either Northern VA, or in the Foggy Bottom area (close to work).

 

Ideas??  Reviews of places NOT to go?

 

Thanks!

Thyra

Thanks!!  I'll be living with family initially (a few months at least until I save up enough for an apartment deposit and all that) - any advice on good places to live?  I will not have a car initially and the cost of living is a little scary!

I don't know a lot about the different options.  We've always used a Bright Horizons location in NoVA.  We're generally very happy with it.  I think it's obscenely expensive, but we both WOH full-time and I can't beat the convenience given where it is in location to my job.

Can you tell me how expensive it is?  There is one very close to where I will be working - but I haven't found out how much it costs.  I'm a single mom, so I'm a tad worried about how I'm going to afford everything, but I'll manage somehow.

 

Thanks though!!
