My husband and I have three year old twin boys. They will be 4 in October. We are looking for a two day a week morning preschool program to start in the 2011 -2012 school year. We live in the Tosa area by Milwaukee Lutheran High School. We are feeling a bit overwhelmed in all of the researching we are doing. We have one major requirement in our search:
1. A program that is not simply "playing" childcare. We want more of a 3K preschool program with structured activities to get our boys thinking and doing (We realize that much of this can be done through play, but we, again, are looking for a program with some preplanned, structured activities.)
2. I am willing to drive...Tosa, Menomonee Falls, Germantown, Brookfield, etc.
We have heard about Menomonee Falls Preschool Coop. This place sounds great online, but does anyone have a review? I am an educator myself (middle level English teacher), and worked in a 4K classroom for 4 years as well. I like the idea of helping out in the classroom, but I am not sure what this place is actually like.
**Any help/suggestions you could give my husband and me on centers to check out would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you so much!
