TriValleyMom.com reader Linda is new to the Tri-Valley, but not the East Bay. She's moving from Walnut Creek to Livermore, and has emailed the following question:
"We are currently looking at homes in Livermore (we live in Walnut Creek now) and one of the most important things we are considering and looking into now is childcare options. As with all parents we want to be sure our son is in a great place with great care!
"Right now he’s in an in-home care and we love it. However, we are also looking into more formal center type schools as he is now a toddler. We looked at Valley Montessori and while it looked nice we have read a few bad reviews that have us hesitant.
"Do you by chance have any recommendations (from yourself or other mom friends) on great childcare in Livermore area? We are willing to drive to Pleasanton or Dublin as well if needed to find great care."
