Childhood Education, v85 n1 p49 Fall 2008
Every family wants to ensure a positive preschool foundation in order to build interest and success in the coming school years. Beyond an intuitive hunch, however, many families may not know exactly what to look for as they begin the search for a preschool. In response to both the perplexing nature and the significance of the task at hand, this article provides a list of questions to consider for families who are in economic and geographic situations that allow for choice. These questions, although not an exhaustive list, should help guide families in thinking about how preschools are characterized, so that they may determine the best preschool match for their child.
