The best preschools we have in Ocala are Blessed Trinity's- Angels In Arms (long waiting list), Grace Building Blocks, St. Pauls methodist ( long waiting list), Grace Episcopal, First Assembly and Kinderoo. Then you have all the public schools that have preschools. Your children are not eligible for the free vpk until they are 4 by Sept. 1st.

I would say to look around (even if you see good reviews for a preschool online) and visit several preschools just to get a feel. We read online and heard Happy Hearts had a good program. The school has been there for decades so I have no doubt it's been run better in past years. But quite frankly the school now has an atmosphere that feels like it is run by a bunch of 6th grade girls. Literally high schoolers conduct themselves in a more mature fashion. I recommend looking for preschools that are run by adults with real world experience and go a step further in terms of education. Do yourself a favor and visit several preschools before making your decision.
