Looking for Daycare/Preschool

Hi there!  I currently have a 2.5 year old girl attending Susan's Garden Childcare.  I am due with Girl #2 in June, and so by fall will have a 4-5 month old needing daycare.  Unfortunately, Susan's doesn't accept kids until around 18 months of age.  Does anyone have good suggestions for infant care around Oak Park/Forest Park/River Forest?  It may end up that the two kids are at two different places, which would be fine, but ideally would love to have them both at the same place.  I know of…See More

African-American Hairdresser

Several months ago, I made a desperate plea for a good hairdresser in Oak Park who does African-American hair. Unfortunately, I didn't receive any recommendations. Now, I'm pleased to report that I have found someone who does a great job so I just wanted to spread the word in case anyone else is searching. Her name is Reinee and she's at Hair Tech on North Avenue. I give her two thumbs up. See More

Anyone on the board work at OPRF?

Hi everyone, My husband is interested in a position at OPRF and would love to connect with a current member of the faculty or staff about the school environment. He would be coming from a university office so he's anticipating differences but would appreciate any insights he can get from someone on the ground at the high school. Please email me at lizzpietrus@gmail.com if you can help. Plus, we'd love to meet another neighbor as we've only been here a few months.Thanks!LizzSee More
