Memphis Moms Guide to Preschools

One of the most frequently asked questions in our community groups is, "Where should I send my child to preschool/parents day out?" We all know how important preschool education is. At preschool, children build a strong foundation in social, pre-academic, and general life skills that will give them a leg up in school and beyond. Research shows that children who graduate from preschool have improved academic readiness, lower incarceration rates, and higher earnings. With that in mind, Memphis Moms has put together this important resource to help you make the best decision for your family of where to send your child to preschool.
