Looking for the Right Preschool

This coming school year (June 2008), Dwight & I planned to enroll our son Dwyane to a preschool. He is turning 3 this April and by June I think he at his age he is enough for a nursery. The standard age bracket of preschoolers today are 2 1/2-3 for nursery, 4-5 for kinder and 5-6 for preparatory. I already look for learning schools near our place and I found 4 but only two of them appeal to me. I was torn between 2 good schools. I really need to think and evaluate each of them. The first school is the Regina Carmeli School affiliated by De La Salle University, it was practicing for 11 years and the teacher there was the teacher before of my cousin in 1996. The other is St. Vince Wizard Learning School, it only started last year, so this only their second year, but I was able to talk with the teachers and found that they practice Montessori standard of teaching. Well, I still have enough time to think about it but since St. Vince Wizard offers summer classes, I thought that this would be a great time to see how will Dwyane react on his school environment plus how well the teaching will be.
