I asked our Go Ask Mom Facebook fans if they knew of any preschools with openings. The answer: Indeed, they do.
More than two dozen people posted about openings at preschools across the region.
My question was prompted by an email from one preschool - First Baptist Weekday Preschool - which has openings. The school is at 99 N. Salisbury St. in downtown Raleigh.
And straight from our Facebook page with just a few minor edits from me. I include websites when the poster included the website in her comment. Most, if not all of these schools, can be easily found in a Google search.
Here they are:
