For us, price was one of those make or break factors, and finding an affordable preschool proved to be a big hurdle to overcome.

30 Things To Do on February Break with New Jersey School Kids

It might feel as if Christmas break just ended, but winter break is already upon us! For most New Jersey public schools, that means a long Presidents Day weekend, with schools closed on Friday, February 17 and Monday, February 20. Some districts observe the holiday on Monday only, while many schools take the whole week off, not returning until the following Monday, February 27.

Whatever combination of days your kids have, chances are they are ready for some fun, whether they want to stay warm indoors or embrace the cold in a wintry activity like skiing, ice skating, or snow tubing. We've rounded up the best winter break activities for kids of all ages. To plan a family adventure, check out our best bets for winter day trips or an indoor water park for a summer feel!

And don't miss our February GoList and Events Calendar for even more suggestions.
