Watching your little ones grow is a wonderful experience. But before you know it, time will arrive for them to be away from all the cuddling and petting at home. Is it your little one’s turn to start kindergarten? How much are they looking forward to it, or do you think they are not prepared for it? If you face teary appearances every morning from your kids they might not be enjoying it as much as they should.
Find out the best place
You can always do some inquiries about what places offer a quality service in Montessori and day-caring for kids. Most establishments would let you visit them for a day and watch what happens on a day-to-day basis. You can talk to the teachers, carers, and helpers, get to know about their educational qualifications etc. If there are any kids from families who are known to you, they can give feedback on how it has been. There are online forums on children’s education with the newest technologies; join one and you can gain more knowledge about what are the modern methods used in the world. More and more institutions use technologies such as zoo phonics Singapore where reading will be taught in an interesting and easy-to-remember manner.
Compare the costs
One of the main deciding factors will be the cost. This doesn’t mean that you should altogether avoid expensive places; but you must ensure you get the worth for the amount you pay. More often than not we have seen parents, judging by the cost decide that an expensive kindergarten is a good one. This is not true. You must relate the hours of operations, security measures they have taken, new ways and means of teaching, teachers’ qualifications and how kind and empathetic they are to kids when making a decision. If you have a big “yes” or an “excellent” for all of the above, spending a bit more won’t be a loss.
Test them at home
Just because your kids now attend an official place for learning, you cannot ignore their development at home. Parents are the best people to teach things to their young. Since the little ones already learn things at the day school, you can try to test it at home. If the nursery school concentrates only on activities, you can try reading classes for toddlers, where there will be specialized people on teaching reading for your kids. But remember not to push them too far. Kids learn better when they are having fun. Also look out for home work. That is a concept that is moving out from schools now, more than ever.
Your sole objective is to have your kids become the best in their chosen professions one day. Some may be good in drawing, some may like writing and some will solve problems. It is your duty to be open-minded and allow the kids to carry on in the path they desire. That way they will become the best in whatever they wish to pursue in the future.
