How do you know which preschool is best for your future preschoolers? Here are some tips to keep in mind to make sure you are putting your child in the best preschool.
Make sure the student to adult ratio is fair, you don’t want to put you child in a preschool that has 30 kids and 1 adult. So it’s important to observe how many adults are available in the class. Does one teacher look about ready to pull her hair out? Or does she have control of the students? Are there other adults (aside from you) who are participating with children?
Look at all the children. Do they look happy? Do they look content? Do you see any children being left out of any activities? Do the children seem to like it there? Or so they seem to be smiling or somber? You want to make sure that you check out the discipline stratageies to make sure you concur with them. Make sure you ask the teacher about her disciplining then look for a student who misbehaves and see what she does. Make sure to note if she disciplined the way she told you or if she disciplined differently. You want to make sure that the teachers discipline fits well with you, or if it’s too harsh. Then you might look into another preschool.
You also want to know what the future educational focus is. Make sure your children are learning what they should be learning. Make sure your child will gain experience and you are not just paying for your children to just play like he/ she does at home. You are paying for this, so you want to make sure you child had the best education for their age.
