Who cries more when children go to preschool: the parents or the kids?
What can help with the pain is knowing that the preschool is taking good care of your little ones, and getting them off to a great start in their learning journey.
So tell us, which preschool is the best one in East County?
Though Patch readers only told us one of your favorites during the nomination period, you can vote for others by mentioning them in the comments section — to help us determine the local favorite.
The deadline to vote is Friday, Aug. 17. Votes for "other" must be accompanied by a specification in the comments section in order to count.
