How to Choose the Right Play School for Your Child
Making sure that your child gets the right start in their early years is of utmost importance. Choosing a good play school for them can be an overwhelming experience – so many options to choose from, so much to consider! As parents, you want to ensure that you make the right decision with regards to selecting a play school your child will feel safe and comfortable while also getting the best possible learning experiences out of it. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how you can assess which playschool is most suited for your child’s needs and how you can go about making this important decision process easier.
Here are some parameters that parents should consider when choosing a play school for their child:
Safety and security
The safety and security of your child should be the top priority. Make sure that the play school has proper safety measures in place, such as secure entry and exit points, CCTV cameras, and trained staff.
Curriculum and teaching methodology
The play school should have a well-planned curriculum that is appropriate for your child’s age and development stage. The teaching methodology should be child-centric, interactive, and engaging. When we were planning the curriculum for our kindergarteners we evaluated over 80 curriculums to find the one that’s best suited for our students. While many schools follow the CBSE affiliation, the style of teaching is in the hands of the school and hence it is imperative to know whether the school’s style of teaching matches your outlook.
Facilities and Infrastructure
The play school should have a clean and hygienic environment with child-friendly infrastructure, such as age-appropriate toys, play areas, and learning resources.
Teacher credentials and experience
The teachers should be qualified, experienced, and trained in early childhood education. They should be able to create a nurturing and supportive environment that encourages learning and development. Remember the teachers are the back-bone of any school.
The play school should have an open and transparent communication system that allows parents to stay informed about their child’s progress and development.
Look for a play school that offers a range of extracurricular activities, such as music, dance, art, and sports, that can help in the holistic development of your child. During the formative years the more exposure the child gets the more the chances of discovering their passion.
Location and convenience
The play school should be located in a safe and easily accessible area. Consider the proximity to your home or workplace and the convenience of transportation.
Reviews and recommendations:
Read reviews and talk to other parents who have had experience with the play school. Check the reputation and track record of the play school in the community.
