Important factors to consider when choosing a preschool
The Value of Putting Your Children in a Good Preschool
Early childhood programmes are made to assist kids in achieving their developmental and learning milestones as they pick up lifelong skills.
When both parents work throughout the day, attending preschool also assists families who do not have other babysitters to satisfy their needs. Finding the ideal preschool that satisfies your wants and expectations might be difficult for all of these and more reasons.
Here are a few things to consider when you search for the finest preschool for your kids to assist you in navigating this process.
- Children - teacher ratio
A school’s classroom size and student-teacher ratio are two factors that parents can look at when determining the best preschool program for their child. Different numbers work better for schools depending on factors like their specific curriculum, mission, total size, and more. Parents should take a holistic approach and consider other things as well, such as how teachers engage with the students.
In Shambala Kidz preschool, we ensure that your child gets enough one-on-one attention from an adult who is available to take care of each child’s unique needs. Here attaches our ratio by different age groups.
2 – 3 years old
2: 12 (one main coach, one assistant coach)
4 years old
(* Main coach will handle one class, assistant coach will handle two classes alternatively)
5 – 6 years old
Parents can take note of the decorations and classwork displayed on the walls when visiting a childcare center or preschool. This display will show about the lessons that the teachers conduct with the children and the quality of learning.
Other than that, parents have to take note about the safety and cleanness in the preschool. Did they have children’s size facilities, how is the SOP during the pandemic period.
- Quality of teachers
In Shambala, our coaches were qualified with minimum Diploma in Early Years education. They have been trained and familiar with children’s development and our coaches can assist children go through with every transition period.
- Space for Learning and Play
Space at the preschool and how the learning rooms are divided are two more factors to take into account.
Consider whether there is enough room for kids to walk around and whether there are distinct places designated for the many activities carried out throughout the day, such as classes, naps, and meals, as well as play and exploration.
- Food menu
Your child will be taking meals and snacks several times throughout the day through the food that the school provides. In Shambala Preschool, we provide meals that are well-balanced, nutritious and healthy for growing children.
