Things to Consider When Choosing a Pre-Prep School for Your Children

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.

Child-to-Teacher Ratio

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.

The Facilities

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.

Tuition and Other Fees

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.

More Questions

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.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
