    I am looking for child care for my 2 year old (almost 2 1/2) for 4 days per week. I am thinking he would do best in a smaller preschool situation, but don’t know how to find ones that have openings and are reputable! Any suggestions? Thanks!



    Check out

    There is a lot of information there. However, nothing beats visiting the childcare during the day. Also, be wary of places that won’t allow you to “pop by” unannounced. Good luck!



    Katie McNamara has a preschool near the DelRidge Community Center. It’s called Cedar House. We were VERY happy there. Small group, lots of outdoor play and life skills. Contact her at 206-932-1712.



    Alaflam, Home based preschool are awesome if you find the right situation, and usually less expensive than centers. Childcare resources rock, and a great way to find a licensed home. A few words of advise: A “real” preschool does not have to be licensed if they operate less then 4 hours per day, per shift. They may offer either am or pm, but the same children may not be present at both. Home child care that offers a preschool program is a great find. DEL of Washington has a web page to check for any complaints or ongoing problems, just by entering a phone number or name! Just remember to use your gut feeling, and feel free to drop in ANY time. I have a son that is now 28 that was abused in a home setting and became a non speaker. And also a much younger son that was mistreated in a preschool setting, this past year.
