How to Choose the Right Preschool for your Family

preschool in denham springs mothers day out I am a huge believer that a preschool can be an excellent place for children to spend their first few years of life.

My mother and even my grandmother have worked in daycare my whole life.

I was always planning to continue working on my career and finding a fantastic place for my kids to learn and grow.

However, when my first child came, we were actually in a place where I could stay home with her.

I was loving being a stay at home mom but quickly realized she needed more socialization than my husband and I could provide.

I knew it was time to find a school for her.

I would encourage all parents who are considering any childcare to start with listing out priorities and wants.

Then we began our search for a preschool.

How We Searched for a Preschool

We knew that we wanted our children to be in a safe, healthy environment.

It was vital for them to be cared for well and to learn new things.

I wanted to know about potty training and nap time; I believe children do better on a schedule.

We wanted a place they could be themselves and encouraged to build friendships with other children.

We made sure when we looked at new preschools to ask about outside time, a safe playground, or other fun events for children.

Take your time, and ask questions when choosing a daycare for your kids.

The right quality preschool will help ready your child for school and be vital in the development in all parts of their lives.

We found a fantastic church-run program.

We got to decide between a 2, 3 or 5-day program, and with part-time hours I still got to spend so much of my day being a stay at home mom, while she got the friends and education she was craving.

The staff was friendly and knowledgable.  There was an outside playground that she loved, and I was so excited to see how much they loved parent volunteers so that I could stay involved.

Preschool Priorities

Set your priorities for a preschool, and trust how you feel when you walk in and meet them.

Finding the right fit in childcare is not only about the right PRICE but also finding a place that fits your family.
