There is a preschool and a private elementary school on the grounds of Kendall Presbyterian Church on 112th St. just east of 87th Ave. My son is in PK-4 there and my baby is in the daycare. Both programs are excellent.

Don't even consider Smart Starts at all. My child went to that school for 2years because I didn't know of anything better, but what a regret. I have several parents I am still friends with, and we are all glad to have gotten our children out of that school. They are too busy expanding to care about any children and I would do my absolute best to convince anyone not to put their child there. I would arrive with m y child to his class at times and there were no more chairs left for him to sit on much less a space on the table to eat or play on, I can just go on and on about how horrible that school is. It was a horrible experience and the teachers are barely certified. They hire any random people to be teachers even without the 45 hour requirement by DCF. My son now goes to REM, what a world of difference, now thats a "real school" go online and read about their certifications by NAEYC, the GOLD seal. I must warn you, REM has a waiting list, beacause they are such a wonderful school. Good luck!

i would agree with gdaiz about smart start. i had my son there only for a few months then took him out. Moved him to University Christian Children center. Don't know how you feel about the religion issue but otherwise a great school. My daughter will be starting soon there. Good luck.

Thanks for the replies! I actually did go to see Smart Start and left not very happy; so I guess my instincts were right. I felt like a number. I took a tour at Gladeview Christian and that school seemed amazing..very nurturing environment and helpful. They seem to have a good schedule for hte little ones. Lets see what I do...Thanks again!! Oh..and I'll check out the REM...

I have two children and, hands down, would BY FAR recommend either REM Learning Center on SW 147th Avenue and approximately 164th(?) street, or Early Steps / Childrens Resources on SW 87th Avenue and SW 112th Street. You will be hard pressed to find better schools with a focus on the training and education of their staff than Early Steps, or with the compassion, experience, and education of the leadership at REM. I'm sure there are probably other schools that are genuinely good, as well, but out of all the schools I've interviewed, visited, spoken with parents, and actually enrolled in these are the best. Good luck.
