Looking for Preschool in Los Feliz/Silverlake/Hollywood Area
We've relocated to the Los Feliz area of LA (90027) and I am trying to find a preschool for my 3.5 yo, where she can start at ASAP on a part-time basis. She previously attended a Montessori in San Diego and liked it a lot. I didn't see many Montesorri's in the area.
I called a few preschools, and of course, there are waiting lists galore. =-)

If you like the montessori style, you can try Baxter Montessori in Echo Park. My daugher went there for a year, and ultimately we decided to move her. We have her at Los Feliz Corners, which is a lot less structured, but we LOVE it. I just started my 3 year old son there this week and it is going great. It seems messy and chaotic when you first visit, but my daughter has been there for almost a year and is thriving. She's learned a ton, is reading and doing simple addition, and is socially doing great. Neither of these schools tend to have wait lists.

how about the Eagle Rock Montessori? that's not too far..just avoid the Montessori on Echo Park Ave..not that it's a bad school but a shooting just happened next door 3 days ago. i'm going to send my son to Kids Klub in Pasadena but there's a 6 to 9 months waiting list
