Readers' Choice: Best Preschool in Wilton?

There's certainly a lot to choose from, but which do you like the best?

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.

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 Wilton 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 Wilton 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 Norwalk Patch, email me at michaeld@patch.com or if you want to  (or even !)

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.

I've had 4 kids go through the Wilton Y preschool. Two are out and doing great in the elementary school and 2 are still enjoying the Y. It is a friendly, down-to-earth environment with lots of space and lots to do... swimming, playgrounds, soft-play gym, "nature-walk" trail, fun field trips and the big basketball gym give the program variety and it doesn't feel cramped like some other places. (And it also makes it very easy for mommies to get that workout in!)

We sent both of our kids to Zions Hill Preschool. Our children are now in 4th and 6th grade. They are well rounded, good students, know how to play well with others and remember their preschool experience fondly!! All of these features started with the teachers and leaders at Zion's Hill preschool. What more can we say?? Fabulous!

The Wilton Y is a great pre-school!

My niece goes to Zion Hill and is delighted. Her teachers are warm and creative while challenging the children and fostering self confidence. They teach them responsibility and self respect in an incredibly fun environment. She is learning all and more of what she needs to enter kindergarten. My niece and her little friends can't wait to go to school each day. Great job!

Town & Country Montessori School in Wilton is absolutely fantastic. It's a true Montessori program where the children are happily engaged in learning. It's a peaceful (yes, peaceful!) and sunny classroom environment and the children and families carry this school in their hearts forever.
