Choosing a preschool for your child can be a difficult decision. Friends, family and neighbors are a good source of information, but it’s important to do your own research too. Every child is unique, and what works well for one may not work for yours. This is particularly true if your son or daughter has special learning or behavior needs. The following three questions will help you get a head start on finding the right setting for your child:
- Who teaches the children? – At Over the Rainbow Child Development Center we hire teachers with credentials. Our well educated preschool teachers have taken classes in early childhood education which includes an understanding of how to nurture important beginner reading readiness skills. Besides their formal training, our preschool teachers have a passion for working with young children. They bond with their students and families.
2. How will your son or daughter spend their time at preschool? – A good preschool classroom is a busy place! Students interact with lots of different kinds of things, including building blocks and other materials, picture books, paints and other art supplies, matching games, puzzles, and more. Their daily routine and schedule should include group time as well as other times during which your son or daughter can choose what they’d like to work on, and are able to work alone or in small groups.
3. How does the classroom look? – Over the Rainbow Child Development Centers classrooms are engaging and will spark your son or daughter’s imaginations and make them curious about learning. The walls are bright colors and display each child’s art work and writing.
