We're trying to decide whether to work with school placement consultants for our application process. Would be interested to hear other parents' experiences. Other than Betsy Little and Paula Molligan, are there others you'd recommend in the Bay Area?

Before plunking down the $$ for the consultant. I would suggest checking around to see when private kindergarten nights are in your area. Betsy & Paula usually speak at them and it can be helpful to just attend one of those sessions. You can see if it is right for you. Don't underestimate yourself though, the process is long & hard but if you attend the tours and take great notes and think about the needs of your child, you will come out with a school that's right for your family in the end.

However, if you want to use school placement consultants that get results, I think they have a corner on the mkt.
