Ask which curriculum each school uses, then research the curriculum and pick which one would be more beneficial for your child. That's how I picked the school. Also, google the reviews and read them just to get an insiders opinion. Hope this helps :-) good luck!

What age is the child? First time in school? Any social issues?

I'd find out what the curriculum is like.  That is what is most important.  Are they play based, do they have a structured schedule, etc.

Without knowing the curriculum I would go with the first one, for the field trips which I think is a good thing for kids.

I would probably choose school 2. It seems crazy there is an application fee, registration fee & school fee.

How come!? We actually paid the deposit for the half day at the 2nd school last Thursday! I wish they offered a full day program, maybe they will next year!

My daughter is the same age and is going Tuesday through Friday and they are half days. I think a full day would have been way too much at her age.
