Preschools Are in High Demand - Act Now to Get Your First Choice:
Demand for preschool places has risen in recent years.
Preschools can often have their own criteria for enrollment, with things like whether a sibling attends the preschool or how far away a child lives also considered.
A rise in the number of working moms has also lead to a surge in demand for preschool places meaning competition can be fierce.
Moreover, it’s crucial that parents pay a visit to their chosen preschools in advance so that you can determined the best fit for your child and your family.
Class-size, staff-child ratio, and provisions for children with learning difficulties are criteria that could affect your decision.
So, take your child to preschool tours and during your visit pay attention to their reactions. Can you see them being happy in this environment?
Similarly, try speaking to other parents to compare your thoughts and feelings.
Knowing all this information well in advance can put your family’s mind at ease and help you make the right choice.
