As a parent, one of the most important decisions you will make is to choose the right preschool for your little one. You want to ensure a child’s lifelong learning and success. While choosing a preschool can be easier by asking recommendations from friends, acting according to your own judgment is your best option. You are enrolling your child, not your friends’, so make sure you know the following:
1. An Awesome Curriculum Makes a Difference
An effective preschool curriculum makes every child excited about what they are learning. It should include hands-on activities, sensory play, reading and storytelling, nature walks, as well as artwork. Little Lords and Ladies Learning Academy takes pride in our awesome curriculum that allows your child to explore and learn. We have a curriculum in place for each child and age.
2. A Good Child-Teacher Relationship Is Important
How the child connects with their teacher makes a difference in their days at school. The school will initially be an unfamiliar setting for your child after being used to be with their family round-the-clock. A good preschool has teachers who connect with their students. You don’t want your child to be taught by an authoritarian teacher who barks orders and doesn’t show affection to kids.
3. Class Size Is Everything
There are many factors to consider when determining a good class size. But, generally, a smaller class size means better quality and safety. While having a small class size isn’t the golden ticket to the success of our program, it is important for child education and development. Some of the benefits of a lower student-teacher ratio include:
- Individualized attention. With a small class size, teachers get more opportunities to interact with every child and tailor instruction which meets their needs.
- Improved relationships. Students have the chance to get to know each other and work together.
- More student engagement. In a class with a few students, everyone can have the chance to participate in class discussions and activities designed to demonstrate Christian foundations.
4. Early Literacy Skills Must Be Taught
Preschool and kindergarten teachers must offer the building blocks for students to learn to read. Kids vary in terms of how ready they are for reading activities. When pushed too soon, those who are not ready may think they are not good at reading. A great program should make every little learner feel successful.
5. Your Budget Can Be a Deciding Factor
You want a preschool which fits into your budget before checking out other finer details. There is no point admiring everything about a preschool and then ignoring it because you cannot afford the cost. Our Christian preschool in Florida offers competitive prices. With our effective program, you can be sure you will get your money’s worth.
