9 tips for finding a good school

Your son has grown and now he's ready to take a giant step forward: start preschool. This stage represents a moment of nerves for his parents and of expectation for the child. School is a place of formation of the child and where he will develop his physical abilities, knowledge and socialization skills, so it is very important to choose the best place for the child.In order to find a good educational center, parents must start the search early due to the fact that the highly recommended schools have more requirements for registration of students. It is recommended that space be requested at more than one preschool in case there is no room at the first choice. Once you have found at least a couple of options, make sure that those center fulfill the basic needs and wants of the child. Below are some tips that will help you find the best school for your child: Make a list: with the specifications you want; for example, if in addition to the academic activities, you want him to play sports, take shop, dancing lessons, etc. You prefer the preschool to be close to home, have transportation, extended hours, and all this should be included in your list so nothing will be forgotten when reviewing your options. 2 Quality: in addition to an internet search and knocking on the door of the school, consult with family members and acquaintances about schools they like; these recommendations are important. If the preschool has a good reputation, everyone will be talking about it. 3 Phone calls: as a last step towards finding the best school, go to the Yellow Pages where there are options in every area; but you still should call and inquire about their plans. Make sure that the schools actually give what they offer and are duly licensed. 4 Inspect the site: once you have called and gotten answers to your questions, go to the center to make sure that what you were told is true. You will also meet the director and teachers. 5 More questions: You can't rely only on what you are told, you need to ask your questions of the personnel regarding prices, hours, activities, registration and general rules. Ideally there is one educator for every 7 children; as well as one teacher for every 15 5-year-olds. 6 Experienced personnel: while at the preschool, make sure that the teachers are kind to the students and that they have experience. Also ensure that both teachers and children are comfortable in the classroom. 7 The appropriate place: this must be pleasant, clean and safe. If after evaluating the site you feel confident about leaving your child there, most probably that is the best place for his formation. 8 The child's visit: once you have decided on a preschool, take your child to the site and see how he behaves; if he plays with the children and the teachers, and he likes the place, you certainly did not make a mistake in choosing it. 9 Registration is denied: don't worry if the school you chose for the initial formation of the child refuses your request for registration because of lack of space, let the director know how interested you are in registering your child and put you name on the waiting list.
