Our son has been at MDS City Hall since the age of two and we really like it. For these grade levels, MDS fully embraces play-based methods, which we found age appropriate for the 2 to maybe 3.5 year olds, though more challenge among the older 3s would have been welcome. However: it's a clean, extremely safe, happy place. The head of the school and the teachers are all sweet, patient, and engaged. Best of all: this community is geared toward working parents. It was started by women who work for the City Attorney's office, and though all types now attend, you'll not be made to feel guilty if you're a mom with a job. Or visa versa. Great hours for parents, very easy drop-off.
