How to Choose the Right After-School Childcare Program September 14, 2016

How to Choose the Right After-School Childcare Program , Honolulu, Hawaii

Choosing the right after-school childcare program for your family requires visiting different learning centers and making sure their facilities align with your beliefs as a parent and your hopes for your children. Rather than enrolling your kid in the first organization you find, Pali Preschool in Honolulu, HI, recommends researching potential childcare providers and meeting with their staff to discuss their pedagogical philosophy and curriculum.

Here are a few things to consider when selecting an after-school childcare program:


When you sign your kids up for after school childcare, you should expect more than babysitting services. The after-school enrichment program at Pali Preschool, for instance, is constantly developing a curriculum that encourages students to use their critical thinking skills and foster a natural interest in learning.


ChildcareA quality after-school childcare center will provide students with opportunities to engage in meaningful play that helps them develop social and emotional skills that will prepare them for primary school and beyond.


Don’t be afraid to ask any potential childcare centers if they’re licensed and certified. Teachers should have a sufficient level of experience with kids, and administrators should exhibit an understanding of developmental psychology and early childhood education.


Every learning center has a philosophy, and an after-school childcare program should too. Pali Preschool believes children in their enrichment program should engage in developmentally appropriate activities that challenge them and ultimately give them an opportunity to grow.
