Readers' Choice: Preschool Tied for First

Tell us why you love your preschool —through a poll vote, rating and review—and help spread awareness of all the great options in town in this week's "Readers' Choice" installment.

It's one of the early formal choices that parents make that involves education and separation from a child for regular, extended periods of time: Preschool.

We understand that practical considerations of availability, money and location figure largely into decisions about which preschool parents choose for their children.

Since so much careful research—in person, online and through word of mouth—goes into the preschool decision, we want to poll our North Haven parents not just on what they feel is the best preschool for their child, but also why.

Below is a list of preschools we have registered in our continuously updated North Haven Patch Places directory. Click on any of them to get to a page dedicated to that preschool and to rate and review it.

Please also tell us in the comment thread which preschools are missing from the list and why they're the best—we'll add them to the poll and create a new Patch Places listing for them. If you're a preschool operator who doesn't see your listing on North Haven Patch, email me at anthony.karge@patch.com or if you want to.

Here's our starter list:

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. We will announce the winner at 12 p.m. Friday. The poll part isn't scientific so it's not the sole determinant of a Readers' Choice winner. We will determine winner based on a point system in which poll results and ratings are considered equally. Only the top 3 finishers will receive points. In the event of a tie, we will determine the winner based on which business has the highest combined number of positive comments and positive reviews on its directory listings.
