Mealtimes

A nutritional meal plan is crucial for the growth and development of your child. Due to the availability of snacks and food with high sugar content, it is important to be let aware of the type of food your child takes in school. Try to pick a preschool that encourages healthy eating habits and offers a meal plan that covers all food groups.

Stimulating and interesting syllabus

Learning for children should stimulate their senses and allow them to explore and play. Find out the school’s approach to learning and teaching and see if it fits your child’s way of learning.

Competent and caring teachers

Meet with the teachers and observe how they interact with the children when parents are not around. Children are impressionable at a young age, so a good role model is needed to instil good behaviour and habits in your child. A good teacher pays attention to each child, hones their skills and confidence, and is able to handle a large bunch of children while keeping them safe.

Also, you can inquire about the layout of the school and how they maximise learning. Check out the various facilities and the toys and learning materials they use for teaching.
