How can I choose a good preschool for my child?

You wanted to know what you should think about when choosing a preschool for your child. And there’s so many things to consider. I suggest starting by talking to friends and family members in the area who have taken their kids to preschools in the area. And by word of mouth, you can get a list of places, you can also do online searches, and then start to narrow down your list visiting the places or calling the heads of those institutions and asking them a few questions. You’ll want to consider what the class sizes are, what the teacher-to-student ration is, what the focuses are, what the fees are, how close it is to your home, what the schedule is like and if it fits your schedule.

And then ask if there are opportunities for you to come actually observe a class, and while there, look at the teachers. How engaged are they? Do they look excited? How are they interacting with the kids? How do the kids act? Are they excited to be there? Does it seem like a good learning environment that your child would thrive in? Is it clean? Does your child have certain emotional needs that might be met, or physical needs? And if so, talk with the teachers and see if those needs will be able to be met at that specific place. All of these factors will help you make a decision about the school that will be best for your child. If you have more questions in the future for me, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

How do I find a preschool that teaches my child to write?

One of the criteria we look for involves teaching children how to write their names and the alphabet.
