  • First, determine what type of teaching philosphy are you looking for, for your child? Play-based? More academic? Then ask what the school's philosophy is.
    How do they respond to a child not wanting to engage in an activity?
    How do they respond to misbavior?
    Bring your child to the program and let him /her try it out. See how the teachers interact with the kids. If you have any reservations about a place, make sure you reslove them befoer enrolling your child. Listen to your gut!
