Looking for Pre-K Program
Can anyone recommend a good Pre-K program? I'm in the Hilliard/Dublin area but I'm open to suggestions in outer areas as well. Thank you!

School for Young Children on Weishiemer Road in Clintonville, just off of High Street. Parents from as far away as Hilliard and New Albany seek out this program because it is child-centered and offers developmentally appropriate activity choices. There is so much respect for the children and their feelings from the teachers.
I have heard there is an opening in the T/TH 4's class. Today is the first day of class, since it was cancelled due to lack of power last week.

I had lived in the Hilliard area temporarily (about 9 mos) until we sold our house out of state and were able to buy here. While living in Hilliard, we took our kids to The Goddard School (Hilliard I) off of Roberts Road. They have an excellent program and a wonderful staff. I loved them so much that despite the inevitable of having to move our kids to allow ample time for our kids to adjust to a new school prior to my son starting kindergarten next Fall (for before-care and transport reasons), I almost decided to hold off just so my son could attend their pre-k program. It was in our best interest to move them, however, sooner rather than later. The one we go to now is exceptional as well but I'm not sure how far you're willing to go. It's in Dublin off of Perimeter. Good luck!

I am in agreement that the Hilliard Goddard Schools are good. We had our oldest there for a couple of years (the Cosgray building). Bill and Kim Eagle, as far as I know, are still the owners of the two Hilliard facilities, and they seem to run a tight ship. Now, our oldest is at the Primrose School in Dublin and we think they are doing an excellent job also. We changed to their program because we moved and we wanted our son to know some of the kids in his class as he started kindergarten. Anyway, we don't have any negative things to say. It is on the pricier side, but I think you pretty much get what you pay for.
