The Parenthesis event took place on Jan 16. The flyer did not include a list of the schools that attended. However, I came across a list some time ago, but I can't seem to find it again.

Parenthesis is holding a preschool fair. Many preschools in the area attend this.

Pilgrim Community Nursery School has a good reputation. The school is located in the bottom of floor of the the Pilgrim Congregational Church, the so called donut church because it makes and sells donuts at the farmers market in the church parking lot during the summer. The preschool sells donuts a few times a year as a fundraiser so the preschool parents have the opportunity to make donuts.

 A couple of Montessori options exist in the area. 

What part of Oak Park do you live?

We recently moved to the community and are seeking a PreK school for the Aug-Sept 2014 school year. Our son will be 4. Any recommendations, suggestions, information would be greatly appreciated.
