Meet the teachers, ask about the lesson plan or daily activites. Also most states have a rating system for pre-k and preschool programs, you can probably google that to see how the schools are rated. Another major factor for me was the teacher to student ratio. My daughters pre-k has 2 teachers and a classroom "grandma" aka helper and there are 15 students in the class. They have gym, library and art once a week and they have a well laid out lesson plan, learning letters, numbers, shapes, colors, gross motor skills, occupations etc. I love her school and I'm glad I did the research and chose wisely.
