3 Questions All Parents Should Ask When Looking at Preschools, Staten Island, New York

As many parents and educators will attest, preschool lays the foundations for not only early childhood development but also future academic success. So, when it comes time to enroll your child, you want to feel confident that you’re choosing the right facility. Here are five questions that will help you do just that.

What to Ask When Comparing Preschools

1. Are the Teachers’ Experienced & Qualified?

Every time you drop your child off in the morning, you should know they’re in capable hands. While touring prospective preschools, inquire about both the teachers’ and staff’s qualifications. How long have they worked with young kids? Do they have the Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential™? The answer to these questions should demonstrate that the instructors will go above and beyond to nurture your little one’s personal and academic success.

2. What Is the School’s Educational Philosophy?

preschoolIn addition to the staff, you want to get a sense of the preschool’s curriculum. Ask each prospective school how they balance structure and self-discovery in their teachings. See if they offer enrichment programs as well as math and English tutors for students who need additional instruction. Consider the level of communication between educators and families too. Ideally, the school should encourage parents to actively participate in their child’s learning. They should also give frequent feedback regarding goals and milestones.

3. What Is a Typical School Day Like?

Furthermore, you’ll want to ask about activities beyond academics. For example, do the students nap regularly? Are healthy meals and snacks provided? What about opportunities for active play? Find out how your little one would spend each day at that facility, so you can ensure they have all the amenities they need to be happy, healthy, and productive.
