Looking for Pre-school
I'm looking for a good full-time pre-school for my 3 year old in Grapevine, Southlake, or maybe Colleyville area. Most of the churches are only part-time and I haven't been impressed with some others I have looked into. I know of Creme de la Creme, but they're a little spendy and I didn't feel comfortable with the Primrose in Southlake. Any comments or recommendations are appreciated!

Try PSE (Preschool Enrichment) in Southlake. It's right on the border of Southlake and Keller on 1709. My niece goes there and her and her parents love it. The price is comparable to La Petite and Children's Courtyard.

The IvyGlen School in Keller is great (near the intersection of Rufe Snow and North Tarrant). I've been taking my son there for the past year. The classrooms are very structured and they follow a curriculum. My son is 21 months and he has learned a lot. Most of the main teachers have been there several years. One of his teachers had been there 8 years. However, I know several people who use Primrose in Southlake and have been pleased too. Also, I've heard good things about the PSE (Pre-School Enrichment) in Southlake and North Richland Hills. Hope this helps!

I know that you said that you were not impressed with the Primrose in Southlake....however, my sister in law had both of her girls there from infancy until no longer needing daycare and she had great confidence in them. I know that they are very open and receptive to concerns. You may want to go there again or call and talk to the director or owners regarding the concerns and then see how you feel. On the flip side, I now stay home, but when looking for a FT "pre-school" I noticed that many of them were not what I thought they should be and the best ones were the most expensive! I also have a friend that swears by Creme in Colleyville. She was very hesitant about putting her infant in and absolutely loved it!! She still goes there now and has friends that do (she is 5) and my girlfriend has had great luck with other moms from there. I know that in this area, there is not much that can compare to Creme despite the price! I know that this isn't another suggestion, but hopefully, it helps you feel more comfortable about either of these places. I do know that there is a Montessori pre-school called Highland Meadows, and for some reason I was thinking that they have full day care and I know that Reading Friends in Colleyville has gotten great reviews from everyone I have talked to.....but, I think they go everyday, just not all day.....Hopefully, this helps!

Hi! I enrolled my son at Barbara Gordon Montessori School in Colleyville. I visited them a couple of times and LOVED the place. The only thing is that I believe they start full time (8:30 - 3:30) when they are 4 years old. Anyway check with them and see.
My son is only 18 months and will be there for only 3 hours.
I hope this will help
