How do you know a prospective school is right for your child? Taking a tour is the easiest way to get a feel for the atmosphere and energy of the school. The following categories can help you determine whether your child and a particular school are a perfect match:

  • Class Size: Look at the student-to-teacher ratio for the preschool program you are considering. You want to be sure that your child’s teacher is able to provide every student with individualized attention without being overwhelmed. Crayon Box Preschool strives to maintain student to teacher ratios that ensure student safety and allow for personal attention.
  • Educational Approach: Preschool is the first time many children are in a school environment, and a positive, productive preschool experience can set kids up for a lifetime of academic success. Find out whether a prospective school subscribes to a specific educational philosophy (such as the Montessori or Waldorf method) or applies many different approaches to appeal to a variety of learning styles.
  • Available Activities: While you are touring the school, watch students as they play and learn with various toys and art supplies. Ask about structured learning time and free play time, as well as other enrichment activities like guest presenters and field trips. You may also want to ask about indoor and outdoor play spaces to ensure that your child will have ample opportunity to run around.

The teachers at Crayon Box Preschool work hard to make learning fun and create an atmosphere in which your child will thrive. To schedule a tour of the school, call Ms. Virginia at (718) 888-9341 or send an email to crayonbox333@aol.com.
