Selecting a preschool that is a good fit for your child can be exciting as well as overwhelming. As a parent, you want to be confident that you decide on the right program for your little one, but how do you make the best choice?

Everyone who has watched and enjoyed the classic movie The Sound of Music has heard Julie Andrews sing, “When you read you begin with ABC.” It is a basic truth. Learning to identify the letters of the alphabet is the foundation of literacy. As the parent of preschooler, it is natural to be concerned about your child learning their letters. After all, they need to learn their letters to be able to read and write. They need to learn to read and write in order to get an education and have the opportunities that being well educated provides. It all begins when your preschooler learns to identify letters and starts to associate letters with certain sounds and words. That is the goal of our letter-match class, to give your preschooler the best possible foundation for literacy.
Kids Preschool is a great place for my son to start his schooling experience. He loves being there, especially loves Music classes with Mrs. Arya!
Our letter-match class is designed to introduce to the letters of the alphabet, how they are formed, how they sound, and what basic words are associated with specific letters (for example a is for apple). It is all done in a way that is engaging, grounded in the way preschoolers learn, and fun. Students in our class play a variety of letter matching games, use manipulatives to learn letters, sing songs about letters, and engage in tracing letters and other art activities that incorporate letters. We read books about letters and the alphabet, such as the classic Chica Chica Boom Boom. Learning to love letters will be the first step on the path to your preschooler developing a life long love of reading.

Kids Preschool encourages parents to take an interest in the curriculum a preschool offers. It’s important to look for a discovery-based program, and not one that is primarily focused on drill and practice skills. While structure is essential, parents should look for a preschool that offers opportunities for children to make choices about their learning.
Of course, you want to be sure that your child’s preschool teacher is experienced and qualified. A good preschool teacher understands how children grow and develop. Ask about training and experience working with young children and with a developmentally appropriate curriculum.
Preschools should offer plenty of opportunities for active play. Physical activity is critical for the development of a child’s gross motor skills and promotes health and well-being.Table time is also a must. “It’s important that children have daily exposure to fine motor activities, such as stringing beads, snipping paper strips, and pre-writing activities such as scribbling in shaving cream.
Growing tots need to rest at some point during a busy preschool day, so don’t forget to ask the teacher when naptime takes place. Ideally, naps should be scheduled at the same time every day and should not last more than two hours (more than that may interfere with your little one getting a good night’s sleep). You’ll need to know if the school supplies a nap mat, sheet, or pillow.
