Mostly kiddos are naughty by nature and from the age of 2 years, they want to explore just about everything around them. So, in this age when they are constantly in the mood to play, they need a fun environment in which to learn the basics like alphabets, numbers, different shapes & poems. And as a parent, it is a tough job for you to choose the best pre-school in Northridge CA for your kiddo. Here are some points which may help you to judge and take the right decision..

Listing The Top Schools Around Your Area

Identify your kiddo’s nature i.e., the level of naughtiness and how he/she is influenced by the environment around them. Mostly people prefer to seek references for preschools from their friends, relatives or neighbours and choose one from that list. But, every child is different, and what works for one may not work for another. It is better that you put in some research yourself to find the top pre-schools around your area.

Points That Should Be Covered During Survey Visit

While you visit pre-schools for a survey, make sure that you collect information about cleanliness and safety in the premises, who teaches the kiddos and what materials are used in class like books, games, activities and painting, sand art, and the like, to engage students in a fun manner. As we know that to control toddlers is a very tough job, so enquire about the activities that keep your child engaged in something creative and interesting.

Who Teaches Your Kiddo

A Pre-school teacher is a dynamic person who handles the base of the foundation life of a child. Always choose a teacher who recognises the needs of kids and handles them with care. Teachers in pre-schools basically talk with every child, allow them to ask questions and answer them very patiently. Their motto is to increase the confidence level and make children friendly and capable of adapting to every situation. So, while you visit pre-schools make sure that you choose the best one where children are handled well.

Philosophy Of Play

Enquire about the philosophy of play to teach. In this age, usually compromising, competition and negotiation are the challenges for a child to understand. They never think beyond their own needs, so, it is very important to create the right environment, and let them communicate with each other, playing side by side. We know play helps kids to become self confident, so make sure that teachers should conduct different activities that are physical, creative and fun.

Classroom Environment

It is very tough to make kiddos sit down and teach them like the young ones. They need different methods to learn, like identifying alphabets through building the blocks or stories, and numbers through talking about the stars or sand art. The classroom must be decorated with the children’s painting, different charts of flowers, birds or shapes and some original objects to practice identification. Children in pre-schools of Northridge CA spend their time in playing and working with materials or other children, and also they are not expected to sit quietly for long periods of time.
