Update (Friday, March 9): We've decided to extend voting for this category another week, so the polls have reopened and will remain so through 9 a.m. Friday, March 16.
Next week's Reader's Choice contest will ask you to help us determine the best place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day -- so get your (green) thinking caps on!
Original story: Finding the right child care for your little ones is one of the many important choices young professionals face in the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor.
So, this week we're asking readers to weigh in on which service they trust -- partly to recognize the winning organization, and partly to make the decision easier for the busy parents who will soon have to decide for themselves. The winner will be announced Friday.
We put together a short list of contenders from our directories on Clarendon Patch and Ballston Patch:
If we missed someone, please tell us in the comments below.
Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday.
Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and ratings and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.
So tell us about your favorite -- in the poll, in the comments below and in a rating/review of the business on Patch Places. And check out nearby Patches in , Ballston-Virginia Square, Falls Church and Del Ray, which are hosting their own Reader's Choice contests.
Thanks for sharing!
