Today is officially the first day of Autumn and school is in full swing! Many educators are preparing to provide their first quarter assessments and preparing ways to enhance student development.
We too, are making these same preparations to ensure that our curriculum addresses the specific needs of our preschoolers. As daylight savings time approaches and children are spending more time in doors childcare providers cannot cease to provide engaging activities including indoor/outdoor play that will increase dexerity and build confidence.
Below are signs that your child is in a good childcare program.
Some schools communicate with parents more or less. Extraordinary Kydz's parents receive daily sheets describing their child's day. If the school's daily communication habits fit your personal needs, it's a good sign this school is a winner!
Does your child need a smaller classroom size? If you find a small private preschool, that's a good sign for your child that he or she won't be part of a bigger, more day-care-like atmosphere.
The school should explain how they handle sick children and any outbreaks of various illnesses; they should also have a sick policy. A good preschool will be more than happy to talk to you about this.
A school should be willing to give you a trial run or test your kid out for at least a day or two in order to help you decide if this is the best fit for your little one. If the school agrees to this, this is a good sign!
