Pre-k can help children develop the social and emotional skills they need to thrive in kindergarten. If you’re planning on sending your child to preschool, you’ll want to choose a program that’s right for you and your child. In this video from CBS Boston, education professor Dr.
Nonie Lesaux describes what to look for in a preschool.
Talking to other parents is a great way to learn more about the programs in your area. You can also research programs online. As you read up on different preschools, see how well the school aligns with your budget, schedule, and other needs and preferences.
Call the preschool and ask for a tour if you’ve found a good program. Touring a facility will give you a clearer picture of how the preschool operates. This can also be an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the school’s curriculum. You may want to ask about the program’s accreditation as well.
It can be difficult for parents to send their children to preschool. Taking the time to find a fantastic pre-k program can give you peace of mind. The right preschool can help your child develop learning skills that they’ll continue to use for the rest of their lives!
