                How is this list derived? Is there some sort of vote or survey done? Are you able to share the results of that? Also, I thought this was meant to be for the main line, but appears that 2 of the 6 results are in Philadelphia.

                Hi Pete, we created this list based on the results from our School Survey (see above). We explain how we’re showing off our Education Partner Members’ Profile Pages and our “Friend Preschools,” who the parents in our Main Line Parent Community have completed the School Survey about. 🙂 As for your Philadelphia concerns, many parents who live around the Eastern Main Line consistently recommend these preschools, year after year.
