Readers' Choice: Brookfield Pre-Schools

Chime in on the best pre-schools in Brookfield.

We’re putting together the Best of Brookfield and want your help deciding who makes the cut. Each week we’ll have a different topic for you, the readers to vote on and Friday afternoons we’ll unveil that week’s winner.

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.

We understand that practical considerations of availability, money and location figure largely into decisions about .

Since so much careful research — in person, online and through word of mouth — goes into the preschool decision, we want to poll our Brookfield 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 Brookfield Patch Places Directory. Click on any of them to get to a page dedicated to that preschool and 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 Brookfield Patch, email editor Aaron Boyd at aaron@patch.com or if you want to .

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. 

The poll part isn't scientific so it's not the sole determinant of a Readers' Choice winner. We will determine the winner based on a point system in which poll results and ratings are considered equally. Only the top three finishers will receive points. In the event of a tie, we will determine the winner based on which business has the highest combined number of positive comments and positive reviews on its directory listings.

Hi Mary Beth, Thank you for your comment! Perhaps my referencing & citation (conditioning stemming from educational experience and a passion for writing) came across as unintentionally obnoxious. Regardless, it's a habit that rears its ugly head every once in a while. And yes, we are excited about support from the community for local Pre Schools - Plain and Simple! Thanks again! Casey

Hi Ryen, Thank you for your comment! You are absolutely correct: Prince of Peace is the only Pre School you will currently find on the NAEYC accreditation website. We too, recognize that adhering to a national standard is of utmost importance - which is the very reason why we have recently completed the process for our Pre School through Kindergarten programs! Thanks again! Casey

Hi Morgan, et. al Thank you for your comment! We are not particularly concerned about vote, instead, community support for local Pre Schools. Part of my job involves studying our presence in the community, on the internet, and in the media - not monitoring this voting poll. I thought, however, I would use some of the comments here as an opportunity for improvement. And don't worry, no multiple voting here! Thanks again! Casey

Kids Castle is the best, have you seen their middle entrance, it's literally a castle! It is so beautiful to walk in to. Also, the village. Two great areas the kids absolutely love! Also, the utmost professional owners around!
