What to Look for in a Quality Preschool Program

what to look for in a quality preschool program

As a parent, when you first begin the touring process to find the perfect preschool for your child, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed or confused. Each preschool offers different benefits, schedules, enrichment programs, and of course, price points. At Yellow Brick Road, we want to make the decision process easy for our families. We understand how important each of those factors are when you’re making your decision and we want to ensure every parent has all of the details before enrolling in a preschool.

That is why we made an easy-to-follow, touring checklist. You can download the checklist here!

As you look at this checklist you will notice a few subjects that aren’t often covered or thought about in a typical preschool tour. We want to highlight a few of those topics here!

One subject that we talk to our parents about in our tours is the outdoor learning environment! We offer outdoor classrooms in our schools to give our students an opportunity to learn both inside and outside throughout the day. Even in our younger classrooms, we will bring our students outside to read books and do art projects when the weather is nice! You can learn more about our outdoor classrooms here!

We also offer enrichment programs onsite throughout the week so that you do not have to worry about bringing your children to learn skills such as dancing, sports, and music after your work day!

 

As you tour preschools, be sure to ask if your meals are included in your tuition! Often times you will need to pay an additional fee for meals. We offer breakfasts, snacks, and lunches all included in your tuition. When you look at our rate-sheet, the tuition you see is what you pay month to month. We do not add on any additional fees for things like supplies, meals, annual re-enrollment, or summer programs!

 Of course we have nationally respected and recognized owners who are both local and on-site in each of our locations!

There are so many other important factors to consider when you are touring preschools and we encourage you to bring any question that you have about our program to our Enrollment Specialist/Family Leason or our Director! We are here to ensure that you have all of the information about our centers as you find that Yellow Brick Road is the right preschool for your family!
