    Hello! I am trying to access your 2018 preschool guide, but I am only seeing the 9-10 paid preschool sponsor programs. Is there a longer listing that I am not seeing? Thank you so much for providing this information.

    1. Hi Marcie,

      Each year we invite 15-20 local preschools to be a part of our preschool guide. We like to find preschools of many types and philosophies. These are the schools we are highlighting in 2018. Hope this helps!
