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.
