Relocation advice

Hello friends,

Looking for some relocation advice. We plan to move as a family from good old SIN to US - New Jersey to be precise (back, sort of)

My company is moving us, so basic logistics is taken care of. Base location is likely to be Somerset/ Middlesex.

Have a few questions, some of them glaringly obvious for any one relocating:

1. Good pre-schools? This would be for a 2 year old kid. SIN as many of you would know offers 'the best' for everything, at least on paper. While I would not expect the pre-school to come with all the bells and whistles, my basic expectation would be a good strong reputation backed by high teacher:student ratio, and personal attention to kids.

2. Neighborhoods - we will select neighborhoods by pre-school proximity. Any suggestions here pls.

3. Any other pointers will be very much appreciated.

Which state?

I'm guessing that's New Jersey. Is that right?

You're not really asking a travel question, but a residency / quality-of-life question. I think you would have better luck here:

Thanks - my bad, I got it wrong by assuming we could discuss community stuff here.

The forum you've pointed out to look good! Cheers!
