The preoccupation with numbers begins even before the umbilical cord is cut, as excited new parents, almost unconsciously, start counting fingers and toes. Before long, we begin noting ‘milestones’ – recording first steps and first words. And while, by a child’s third birthday, mom and dad have usually stopped logging every developmental stride in the baby book, a new question begins to crop up: “Is my child ready for preschool?”
Finding the best preschool for your child requires research. There are several different learning philosophies within the field of Early Childhood Education and you may feel only one is right for your child and his or her style of learning. Asking relevant questions is the most important aspect of selecting a preschool for your child.
