With my background in teaching, one thing I never worried much about was picking the right preschool for Weston. I really thought it would be a simple process. But life has a way of throwing you some curve balls and the school I thought would be a good fit for him just wasn’t the right one. So I ended up going back to the drawing board. But I learned a lot through the process and he’s at a school we love now.
Picking the Right Preschool
- Get Advice – Ask your friends for recommendations. This is a great place to start, especially if you live in an area with a lot of schools to choose from. This is where I started our hunt each time.
- Go Visit – I visited each school before we made a decision. But I learned an important lesson, if you can visit the school with your child, you will get a much better understanding about the fit.
- Ask Questions – Don’t be afraid to ask as many questions as you can when you’re visiting a new preschool. Or a school of any kind! The staff should be able to answer your questions so you’re able to make the best decision for your family!
While we had one school that wasn’t a great fit for Weston, we’ve found his current Pre-K school that we love. And before that, we enjoyed our time at The Children’s Courtyard where Weston had some of his earliest school experiences!
We were able to ask so many questions when we visited that I felt comfortable with the curriculum he would be learning. We were also able to visit his classroom and see just how he might fit in. If you follow those three simple guidelines I gave for picking a preschool, it makes it easy to find the right one!
The Children’s Courtyard
At The Children’s Courtyard, there are comprehensive learning opportunities for kids of all ages! Weston spent time in the early preschool program that helped him understand routines and transitions while developing independence and learning through experience!
It’s important to know what your child needs at each age and to find a school that meets their needs! With an exclusive milestone-based curriculum for infants and toddlers, your child can learn from the start!
Then they can continue to learn and grow all the way through Pre-K and even into before and after school programs that encourage school-age students to learn, play, and grow!
So don’t letting picking the right preschool stress you out! Research, visit, and then trust your gut!
