While some personal favorites may seem apparent, listings in this guide should not be taken as an authoritative recommendation. For each category there are a number alternatives for the family to choose from. We have attempted to list legitimate and licensed vendors providing service to families, but we have not endeavored to evaluate doctors or dentists, judge instructors and other vendors, or review the quality of restaurant food. Each family should assess credentials, check references, use oversight and their own feelings and intuition before utilizing any service for their children or family.
