Some more tips to help you do more to choose the right schools for your children:

  • All schools have their website. You can learn some more basic information about the school, its location, tuition fees, and more. This saves much of your busy time before making direct contact with the school for details.
  • Compare locations and travel time from school to your home.
  • Visit each of the choices for kindergarten schools during an open house.
  • Study the current students and teachers closely.
  • Search for a school that gives its children the opportunity to actively participate in learning.
  • Find a kindergarten with a low child-to-teacher ratio.
  • Ask the teachers what the children learn every day.
  • Verify the school’s policy on helping children who are both ahead of the rest of the class and those who need a little extra help.
  • Talk to parents whose children either attended the school in the past or attend the school now.
  • Check to see if there is an after-school program your child can participate in, especially if you work full time.
  • Choose a school with an absolute zero-tolerance policy.
  • Ask the school what its discipline policies are.
