Reader's Choice Poll: Ridgefield's Favorite Preschools

Tell us why the preschool you choose is your favorite—through a poll vote, rating and review—and help Ridgefield Patch crown a winner 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.

And Ridgefielders want to make sure they make the right choice.

This is our second week of the Readers' Choice contest, and it's a wholly different category from last week's "." 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 Ridgefield Patch 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 Ridgefield 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 Ridgefield Patch, email me at michael.gibney@patch.com or if you want to "claim" your free business listing, reaping a bunch of rewards for doing so (or even becoming a small business blogger on Ridgefield Patch!)

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 Growing Tree is the best! I could tell just from talking to the director of the school on the phone that this is where I wanted my children to go. And when I got there for our tour of the school it exceeded my already high expectations. The teachers are beyond caring and really give the kids the learning skills they need for school in such a fun way. More importantly they help the kids grow the confidence they need to continue being wonderful little people and friends.

Both of my daughters have thrived at CCK. I looked at most of the preschools in town and concluded that CCK offered the most loving, supportive, and creative environment for my children to grow in. The projects that my kids have produced are so well thought out and completely crafted by my child. Nothing about CCK is cookie cutter. It is truly a treasure!! If you want an environment that will promote curiosity and confidence this is the only place to look! Plus how many schools have their directors actively running the program and classes! Very unique.

We are thrilled to have experienced CCK as a family. Learning, play, and craft are beautifully coordinated by CCK's highly expert teachers. The atmosphere is warm and caring and my son loves school.
