Someone recommended Acton in my post below about Concord, lol. We actually were considering that last night, ironically. How is the town? Does it have a "downtown" at all? I think my husband and I are leaningmore towards going further out to get more bang for what little buck we have, lol. He says he would rather go on the commuter rail than drive--and I am hopefully working from home, so I would not care about commute (at this point).
One concern is daycares, my older son is at a Goddard here in NJ and we love the school and curriculum. My 4 month old will be entering it and when we move he will also need to be enrolled. I see there is one in Westford? Does anyone know about that Goddard and its rates? I called a Goddard in Reading/Wakefield (cant remember which one) and they wanted $1900 for full time infant. That's about $500 miore a mnth than here in NJ.
