Okay, you’ve got an idea about what kind of preschool you’d like to send your child to (read more here). Great! Now what? Warning: reading this next section might just make this decision feel even more complicated than it needs to be, so proceed with caution ;). Here are a few more things you might consider as you decide on a preschool.

Physical environment

People environment




Is your head spinning yet? Please don’t make a weighted spreadsheet. Only crazy people do that, and I think it probably only makes them/me more crazy. Hopefully your gut is more decisive than mine and it will be easy for you to make a choice without looking back. If not, then I hope this information was more helpful than overwhelming, and ultimately that you find a great preschool where your child can thrive and that also fits your family’s needs!

If you think of more factors to consider, please share in the comments below!

    The good (maybe bad) thing is that we won’t have many options when that time comes for us! We will have to make do with what’s available. I remember going to several preschools, but the one I remember the most clearly was a Montessori and I loved it!

    I think the most important things are: loving staff, safe and clean environment, affordable.
