Oakland County Preschool Recommendations

NOTE – Oakland County Moms is inundated with requests for our Oakland County preschool recommendations from just about every community in Oakland County and we don’t feel it’s our place to make specific recommendations outside of our advertisers. Reason 1 – We’ve only kicked the tires on a couple of preschools in our day. Reason 2 – Different strokes for different folks. Just because we think a preschool is “great” or the “best”, doesn’t mean someone else will. Reason 2 – We would appear biased towards preschools on our site that advertise. Also, we stand by our preschool advertisers in every way. We’ve turned down preschools that wanted to advertise but we didn’t feel the quality was a benefit to our readership. Our preschool advertisers rank very highly on Great Start’s list. When it comes to child care and preschool recommendations, Oakland County Moms fully trusts the judgement of the experts at Great Start Oakland.
