Reviews - What do customers think about Finding a Preschool for Your Child in San Francisco & Marin?

Adequate reference guide  May 2, 2008
We got into the SF preschool game late and, in my desperation, I bought this book and read it cover to cover. It gives a nice summary of each school that responded to the authors' request for information and it was one of the few resources I've found that includes information on public preschools in the city. I would not recommend that parents use this as their sole guide in finding a preschool - check out, ParentsPlace's "Choosing a Preschool" class or preschool information night, or "Babies By the Bay" for more information - but it's a good starting point and I was happy to pass my copy along to a friend. (Our preschool search had a happy ending: we applied to three schools and got offered spots in two - one of which was our top choice. Good luck to you, too!)
Good reference of preschools but not a lot of guidance on process  Mar 26, 2008
I grew up in a place where you just call up the nearest preschool and say, hey my kid is 3 and you drop them off the next day. But getting your child into preschool in San Francisco is about as competitive (and expensive!) as getting yourself into graduate school. I bought this book for a litle wisdom and insight on the process so I wouldn't end up having to educate her myself. It outlines all the preschools who responded to their survey on factors such as admission policies, parental views, costs, teaching focus, etc and provides some overall background on popular preschool "teaching philosophies". However, what it doesn't tell you is which schools are the most popular, which schools are the hardest to get into unless you build a library or know someone famous, which schools will actually call back when you try to get information, and which schools require a visit when child is still in womb. These are the kinds of things that could be helpful to know. Instead, it says more reassuring things like, all kids find the right school, don't let the process intimidate you, don't worry, blah, blah, blah. So while its a good start, I guess I was disappointed about what it doesn't say and what I really wanted to know. In fact, I finished the book more anxious about the process than when I started.
