10 Things to Look for in a Preschool

10 Things to Look for in a Delray Beach Preschool

A good preschool has a plan for each classroom, child, and day of the week.  These plans should include structured activities both indoors and outdoors where your child is interacting with other children and participating in activities that incorporate fun and learning.

Here is a list of other things to look for in a preschool:

  1. A well-lit, classroom with fun and colorful decorations, especially the original artwork of the children that spend time in that particular classroom
  2. Class size: A good student to teacher ratio
  3. Story time – story time helps children learn to read, listen, and pay attention, so story time is a very important part of the education process for little ones.
  4. A day filled with lots of constructive things to do. You don’t want your children to go to a preschool where they spend most of their time sitting quietly or napping.
  5. Evidence of teachers taking an interest in children’s individual needs and working with children in small groups, and the entire group at different times of the day.
  6. It’s important for children learn how to incorporate numbers and the alphabet in the context of everyday experiences that include their surroundings and meaningful activities like cooking, serving snacks, counting while jumping rope, etc.
  7. Teachers that are involved with their students and who are fully engaged in activities and solving problems
  8. Certifications: Staff educated in child development, and CPR and First Aid techniques
  9. Well defined policies:  Discipline and Sick policy
  10. Cleanliness – check out the bathrooms, kitchen (where applicable), classrooms, playground, and even exterior of the building to make sure it is kept clean. Make sure there is toilet paper, soap and paper towels or a hand drying mechanism in the restrooms.  And find out what the bathroom usage policies are.

When it comes to the caretakers and educators of your children, a friendly, accommodating, and responsible staff is definitely a great asset to any environment.
