Starting your child’s education correctly is important. The beginning of their education substantially influences their progress in general. This is one of the reasons why more parents are opting for pre-prep schools to get their children through to year two.
Of course, you can’t just go for any pre-prep school. Not all courses and schools are created equal and you want to get your children the best education from the very beginning. To do that, there are several important things to consider when choosing a pre-prep school for your children.
You want your children to get all the attention they need to grow, which is why I always recommend opting for a school with a lower child-to-teacher (or child-to-adult) ratio. Schools with smaller classes tend to offer more attention to each individual child. Your kids will get the support and attention they need to fully grow during their early years in school.
Smaller classes are also more effective. When teachers have fewer children to pay attention to, they can deliver knowledge and attention to each child better. As a result, the whole learning environment is better and kids can learn so much during their early years.
Paying a visit to the school is a necessary step to take when choosing a pre-prep school. It is a great way to see if the school is easy to reach; you will have to do school runs on a daily basis, so easy access is a huge plus. There are a lot of great schools to choose from, so finding an independent pre prep school in Swansea – or one near where you live – should not be a problem.
The visit will reveal more about the school itself. Ask yourself if the school is clean and child-friendly enough. Walk around the facility and talk to the school head and staff while you’re there. Aside from the atmosphere, you can also learn more about other children going to the school and whether the learning environment is suitable.
Don’t forget to see if the pre-prep school is affordable. We all want the best for our kids, but knowing how much the course costs is still important. You can decide whether the school is well within your budget by asking for a complete fee structure during your visit to the school. It is also a great way to spot a red flag; any good school will be more than happy to provide you with a detailed fee structure in writing.
Lastly, make sure you get all of your questions answered. Is there a good sport or art program at the school? What are the contingency policies the school puts in place for dealing with emergencies? Will the teachers be able to prevent bullying?
Ask any question you might have about the school and its program. You can then select a school that provides you with the best and most comforting answers. Combined with the other things we covered in this article, choosing a good pre-prep school for your children should be very easy to do.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
