I'd like to get updated recommendations on pre-schools near Sherman Oaks in the SFV. I am having trouble comparing all of them, even with visits. I'd like opinions from people who know several of these to compare. Positive and critical opinions are really appreciated. Here are some we have heard:

ABC Little School
Beth Hillel Day
The City School Waldorf Initiative
Caterpillar Cottage Preschool
The Nurtury Preschool
Exploring Minds Montessori
Children's Circle
The Neighborhood School
The Sherman Oaks Nursery School
Maggy Haves
Sunnyside
Great Beginnings

Really appreciate your help!
