Tips for Choosing the Right Kindergarten for Your Child
- Take a Tour: Do you connect with the facility and team?
- Assess Teaching: Look at what they teach and how they teach.
- Parental Involvement: Choose schools that welcome parental involvement and have strong PTA’s.
- Principal Philosophy: Talk to each principal to determine focus.
- Community Commitment– Do the neighbors support and welcome the school and will they show support as Bond initiatives come up that can impact your child’s future.
- Test Scores: Take with a grain of salt, newer tests provide unreliable feedback – better perspective is found asking current parents if instruction prepared their child to transition to the next academic step.
- Signature Programs: What is the school most proud of, what program will help keep your child excited about going to school each day.
