How to Find Local Preschools
Are you interested in sending your toddler to preschool soon? If you are, you
may be wondering how you can go about finding a preschool to enroll your
child in.  Of course, it is important to remember that you are advised to not
just find a preschool, but choose one. With that in mind, however, the first
step is familiarizing yourself with all of options.  This typically involves finding
as many local preschools as possible.

When it comes to finding local preschools, you will find that you have a number
of different options.  Just a few of the many ways that you can go about
finding local preschools are outlined below.

Your Local Telephone Book

Your local telephone book is an easy way to find local preschools in your area.  
Unless you already have the name of a preschool, you will want to turn to the
yellow pages of your phone book.  The yellow pages are also commonly
referred to as the business directory section.  Under the heading of
“preschools,” you should be able to find listings for local preschools in or
around your area.

The Internet

The internet is another great way that you can go about finding preschools in
or around your area. When using the internet, you can either use online
business directories, online phone books, or standard internet searches. When
performing a standard internet search, you may want to search with a phrase
including your city, like “ABC Town Preschools.”  These types of phrases will
generally give you better search results.

Recommendations from Those You Know

There is a good chance that you know of someone, whether that individual be
a family member, friend, coworker, or neighbor, who has recently sent their
child to preschool. If you do know of anyone, you may want to think about
asking them for recommendations.  Recommendations are nice, as you aren’t
just getting the contact information of a local preschool, but feedback and
inside information on them as well.


In many cities and towns across America, many preschools are held in
churches.  If you currently do not attend church, you may want to think about
contacting a few of your local churches.  Even if the church you contact does
not have a preschool program, you will likely find that they will give you
information on others in the area that do.  What you need to remember about
church preschool programs is that many do not require you or your family to
be a member just for your child to attend their preschool program.

Local Schools

Another one of the many ways that you can go about finding information on
local preschools is by contacting your local schools, namely elementary
schools.  Many would be more than willing to pass on preschool program
information to you.  In fact, you may even find that your school district runs a
preschool program or at least a Pre-K program.

As outlined above, there are a number of different ways that you can go about
finding preschools to enroll your child in. As a reminder, you don’t just want to
pick a preschool out of a phone book, as preschools come in all different sizes,
shapes, and qualities.
