The best preschool in South Brunswick by far is Sand Hills located at 57 Sand Hill Road, Kendall Park. The staff is second-to-none! I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. I would resend my children there in a heartbeat.

Sand Hills is most definitely the top preschool in So. Brunswick!! Both my children have benefitted from the Mommy and Me program, as well as 2 years in preschool. My son is now in 2nd grade, and is more than excelling socially and academically. My daughter will be starting kindergarten in the fall, and I am confident she will do just as well. The staff is caring and loving, and I can't imagine my children going anywhere else. (By the way, the church family at Sand Hills is just as warm and inviting as the preschool family! My husband and I are so thankful to have discovered both of these gems.)
The runner up in this week's Reader's Choice was , located at 143 New Road in Monmouth Junction.

The best school in SB is childrens first Montessori school. The teahers are the best. They work with your child based on their capacity. They do not rush them at all. I have both my daughter and son there.. And they both doing great!! The best thing is that the teachers encourage not only our kids but parents too to participate on a daily level about the Childs progress. They give you daily updates on what your Childs progress. I absolutely love this school.. The teachers .. Their curriculum ... The atmosphere!! It's absolutely great!!! My kids not only write numbers over 300 but they are already writing sentences and addition and subtraction too!! I felt very proud of selecting this school when a first grader mom said to me "it's amazing that your child can do this when her son was still learning addition and subtraction!!!

Children First Montessori(CFM) is the best Preschool in South Brunswick. My daughter has been going to CFM since she was 2.5 and this year she graduates and goes to Kindergarten...I have seen her transition from a toddler to a confident, mature Kindergartener and this is solely due to the Teachers and staff at CFM. The curriculum, the teaching methods and the involvement by the teachers with the students and the parents is commendable. The children absolutely feel cherished and cared for while having great learning experiences. I highly recommend this school to everyone!
