3 Tips to Help You Choose the Right Preschool

One of the most important tasks that parents are faced with as their children age is choosing the right preschool. Attending preschool is important for a child's education, as it starts them off on the right foot. But how do parents choose the right preschool? You may be thinking, "Well, I'll just choose the private preschool near me." Unfortunately, proximity is not the main factor that should be considered when choosing a preschool. So let's take a look at a few simple tips to help ensure you choose the best preschool possible.

Consider the curriculum: While preschool won't have an extremely difficult curriculum, it should still offer a thorough teaching plan that focuses on reaching specific goals throughout the year. All preschools are different and all come with a unique curriculum. So what do you think is best for your child? There are some preschools that primarily have their students stay at their desks while others may offer more open-ended and hands-on learning. Private school curriculum generally focuses on a variety of subjects that interest the students. Looking at the curriculum is a great first step when choosing a preschool.

Focus on the staff: Teachers play a critical role in the education of your child. This is why it's important to not only make sure the teachers are qualified but that they interact properly with their students. Preschool is a vital time in a child's life and teachers should be kind and nurturing. They should care about their students and express interest in their education. When you find a school that has a caring staff who encourages students to learn and pursue their interests, you know you've found a good one.

Trust your instincts: At the end of the day, you know what's best for your child. There is an endless list of factors you need to consider and each type of school is unique. For example, when looking at private schools, it's important to remember that in 2011-2012, 96% of private schools were coeducational, with 2% enrolling all girls and 2% enrolling all boys. Extracurricular activities, teaching methodology, and references can make all the difference when choosing a preschool. But you need to choose what you think is best for your child.

So when you start thinking "how do I find a good private preschool near me?" remember these tips. Taking your time and trusting your instincts will help you choose the best preschool for your child.
