I just found out that I will be a geographically single mommy with a preschooler and a newborn, moving to Ft Lewis-McChord in the fall. My most pressing question is, what is the best preschool in the area? DS is at a stellar outdoor preschool in Wash DC right now, and we really care about education. I know I need to get applications in ASAP and have done no research. I'm willing to move to whatever neighborhood will give him the best schools (preschools, and he may also start K there).
Second, what about daycare for the newborn? How is the CDC? My son went to the CDC and I felt comfortable with that when he was an infant. Are there other good places in the area?
Last, how expensive are nannies? (Live in or live out)
Thanks in advance ladies!
