How Do You Choose A Good School For Your Child? by Shinor(m): 9:00am On Sep 05, 2015
[b]How Do You Choose A Good School For Your Child?

It's September and the school gates will open to students again. Some of these students will be attending these schools for the first time while others will be returning to a familiar environment. For a number of parents and guardians, the holiday period and even before that had been dedicated to finding “ a good school” for their children.
So how does one go about finding a good school?
There are those who will choose a school based on the national and international examination results. There are others who will choose a school based on the fees it charges believing in the unsubstantiated saying that ” if it’s expensive then it must be good”. Yet there exists another group who will only go by testimonials from parents who already have kids in these schools. Some will however adopt a mix to help them arrive at a decision.
As a parenting skills strategist and youth mentor I believe your child is the most important factor and therefore should be at the centre of your decision making. But first, this will entail that you know your child very well. Then and only then can you start looking at schools that will support him or her in his learning process. Are there any particular needs that may affect learning? If so which school offers the best support ?
If your child is about to go to nursery or preschool, what you want to consider most is the relationship between the teacher and these little children most of whom are leaving their parents for the first time. Is the classroom a loving, caring, environment? Do the children feel safe and secure? Does the teacher demonstrate an understanding of the needs of these little ones? The worst thing that can happen is to get this foundation wrong and throw the child into a harsh learning environment where their self confidence and emotional well being suffer terribly. In really bad cases this has been known to affect some children right up to their teenage years.

Visit the school laboratories and see if they have a library. You must also put into consideration the general look of the environment and security for those living in the northern parts. Don't take them to Borden otherwise they will end up being lesbians or gays depending on their sex.

It is important to choose best school or preschool for children as it serves as basic foundation for growth. Parents must research about the school, educational background of teachers as well staff, curriculum, rules and regulations and security. I think all these thing plays an important role while choosing a school or preschool.

I think this is always a difficult choice, as there are many schools that could suit them perfectly. We are not thinking about an international school right now https://www.bischool.com/ or local. The first can give an excellent education, a new habitat for many other things. I think it's a great experience. The second will allow the child to be closer to home and will be less stressed
