We’re often asked what parents should look for when selecting a preschool for their child. To help parents and guardians with this decision we’ve collated a 10 point guide of things to consider when choosing a pre-school.

The article “Ten Things to Consider when Choosing a Preschool,” which includes a checklist for you to print off, expands on the following issues:
  1. The Ofsted Report – How to find it and what to look for
  2. First Impressions count
  3. Booking a visit – when and on whose terms?
  4. Outdoor activities
  5. The logistics of using the preschool
  6. How does the pre-school cater for the individual child?
  7. Staff and Team leader – approachability, qualifications and experience
  8. The ownership of the preschool
  9. What other parents think of the pre-school
  10. The importance of Partnerships
We hope that you find the checklist useful and that it helps with your decision making.
