Thinking About Preschool

As your child nears her 3rd birthday, you might be considering when and where to enroll her in preschool.

Children who have attended a high-quality preschool or Head Start program before entering kindergarten tend to adjust more quickly and easily to the academic and social world of school.

Here a few things to consider as you look for a preschool:

  • Ask other parents for recommendations of preschools that they like.
  • Check on teacher-to-student ratios.
  • Find out how much time is spent in structured activities versus free exploration time (a balance is essential).
  • Visit the preschool with your child.
