I'd like to guess the voting was rigged, which is unfortunate for families trying to do legit research. I don't see how if even you and your spouse voted, that some of these schools have that high of enrollment. I have had my kids in two of the schools on this list. We are now at Growing Tree, and I'm almost sad that I spent a year at the first school. We have been extremely happy with Growing Tree and all of the teachers. It's truly a second family, and they are well managed. Day care is a really important element to your sanity of going back to work. Good luck with the decision, but my opinion is to visit as many schools as you can to find the one that is right for you.

Wow, Dima! I had no idea your opinion, however valid, would have prompted such inappropriate comments from this very angry "Mary". Someone else in this thread stated that she feels the poll has been rigged because of such a high number of votes. Bottom line..Holmdel Preschool gets the job done. Maybe, just MAYBE, if SOME people would look at the progress their children have made while enrolled in HPS..well, you catch my drift. Do not worry, Dima....I got your back ;) lolololololol C'mon, we can all giggle a little, right?

My children are enrolled at Holmdel Preschool and I cannot begin to explain how wonderful they are in their academics and in the warm and enthusiastic environment they create. I find the comment made about the administration by Mary K both untrue and out of place in a forum such as this as I have first hand knowledge of how the director, who she called "queen" has helped many families in need such as myself when she did not have to , during times of lay offs she was there and when there was a family who needed to make a holiday she did that for them, as well as when a staff member needed assistance she was immediately there for her too--The constant replacement of new items in the school, the new equipment and furnishings speaks to how her wallet is open for the children and families. I am proud to be a member of this Holmdel community and of this preschool and when we got the facebook message and the email, we were all happy to participate in the voting and many of the alumni were happy to participate as well -- as many of us keep in touch on facebook so I can certainly understand the loyalty and the votes I think there are about 200 families at the school now so no false voting here. Sad to see so many petty and spiteful people, when this just should have been about parents sharing about the pride they had in their child's school experience. Dima we know the truth, this place offers something special! Holmdel Preschool gives parents and children a great foundation.

Well said J Norman. I am so thankful for everything that the "queen" and the staff at holmdel preschool have done and continue to do for my children.

Thanks for your support Donna! Appreciate it. Yes, I am all for not taking things too seriously. We have to respect each other's opinions. That's the whole point of this poll after all! :)
