It’s happened: your baby became a toddler and then, a curious kid who’s ready for preschool. You’ve done some research, you’re about to tour a preschool facility, and you’re wondering what questions to ask. Sure, you want to ask about safety and costs, but there’s so much more that needs to be addressed. Rosewood Academy wants to help you get the most out of your child care center tour. With locations in Dallas, Frisco, and Carrollton, TX, Rosewood Academy offers daily tours of their fantastic facilities.
Programs are available for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and after-school kids. They understand that it can be difficult for parents, especially first-timers, to know what questions to ask when touring. Here are some suggestions to get you started:
- What’s Your Educational Philosophy? While it may look like the children are simply playing, quality child care centers have an early childhood education philosophy that shapes daily activities. Rosewood Academy uses a combination of traditional and Montessori education, which means kids are engaged in plenty of hands-on learning opportunities.
- What Are Your Teacher Qualifications, and what is the teacher-child ratio? These questions allow you to learn more about the quality of the preschool’s teaching staff. Ask about teacher qualifications and any professional training they receive. You will also want to ensure that teacher-child ratios are maintained; these point to the quality of care and individualized attention your child will get.
- How Do You Approach Parental Involvement and Communication? Ask about whether children receive a daily progress report, whether there is a newsletter, and how parents can be involved in special programs at the school. Rosewood Academy keeps parents up to date with activities and events through regular communication and social media.
- What Extra-Curricular Activities Do You Offer? Many preschools offer extra-curricular programs that enrich your child’s learning experience. To complement their curriculum, Rosewood Academy offers Montessori elements, educational field trips and an engaging physical education program.
