It may be the loving teachers, colorful art supplies or the engaging picture books.
But there is something about a beloved preschool that stays with us. The sweet children's art made around their handprints, the puppets and stuffed animals, the miniature kitchen set where kids "practice" cooking.
After our children graduate from preschool and enter the world of elementary school, we remember fondly the adorable skits, Halloween parades, pajama days and keepsake art projects.
Surely there is a preschool in your town that represents the wonderful experience of early childhood education.
Share it with Patch during this week's "Reader's Choice" poll. If we've forgotten to list it, enter it in the "other" category. And be sure and comment and tell us why that school provides a wonderful experience for children. We will share the results with you on Friday, after the voting stops at 9 a.m.
Stay tuned and encourage your friends, neighbors, teachers and fellow parents to vote.
