The list author says: "If you're a parent researching or applying to preschools in Los Angeles, these books will help you navigate the preschool admissions process and choose the right LA nursery school for your child."
"This directory provides a description of most Los Angeles preschools written by parents. It includes information on each school such as tuition prices, application fees and deadlines, expected parental involvement, contact information, etc.""
"The only book dedicated to helping parents choose and gain admission into preschool. In addition to criteria to consider when choosing a preschool and descriptions of the different educational philosophies, it also gives detailed advice on writing application essays (including a sample essay), acing child assessments and parent interviews, and getting off waiting lists."
"This book includes reviews of 44 Los Angeles area preschools. It's not as comprehensive as the Whitney Guide, but the reviews are pretty detailed (includes student body demographics, elementary schools children go to after attending that preschool, etc.)"
"This book dedicates a chapter to the preschool admissions process (and another one on the private kindergarten process). Otherwise, it is a great resource for parents of preschoolers and provides advice on everything from discipline and mealtime to naps and playdates.""
"So this documentary actually follows six New York City (not Los Angeles) families going through the crazy preschool admissions process, but it's interesting to watch and might even make you feel a little better that you're NOT trying to get into a preschool in Manhattan!"
