I will be traveling to Prescott for an interview next week and would like as much info as possible with regard to living there. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I am a simple, no frills, BFing, cloth diapering, no television and lots of outdoor play kinda Mom to an almost 3-year old and an 8-month old. Some specific things that I would like to check out are
1) Pre-schools (what are some names, costs, your thoughts)
2) Day care and nanny rates and what I can expect
3) Cool parks for kids with big playscapes and options for toddlers
4) Library story hour(s)
5) YMCA classes (swim, tumbling)
6) Average cost of food for a family of four per month
7) Good food stores à la Trader Joes
8) Mom to Mom sales for used clothing

Thank you so much!!

I live a few hours north in Flagstaff which is generally more expensive, but I can help with a couple of things. Prescott is growing very fast - it is a beautiful place to live and has great weather for the most part. There is not a Trader Joe's there... yet... but the is a New Frontier natural food store that will have all of the Organic produce you will need. There is a farmers market in the summer.

Good luck!

Those should get you started

I think Prescott is also on craigslist

Do you know if you prefer Prescott or Prescott Valley?

Google both and you should get a ton of info. I'm not sure how much luck you will have on the nanny front but there should be mainstream daycare up there as well as inhome daycare providers.

Mom to J and never ending
