When you find a school you are thinking about sending your child to, schedule a time to go in and visit with the school director and teacher. Upon arriving at the preschool, observe the kind of security they have. If you are able to walk right into the school, you may want to take into consideration that this particular school may not have any strict security measures. Most preschools will have a doorbell or call button so they can talk to the secretary or someone at the front desk to be let into the school. This is always a plus for schools because you want to make sure your child will be safe. It's important that they can't walk out the door and that anyone can't just walk in.
Find out if the school has licensed teachers and qualified staff that have undergone background checks. You can't be too careful when it comes to your child. It's important to ask all of these questions when thinking about sending your child to a preschool.
Make sure the environment is an inviting, clean and organized one. A great preschool Huntington Beach will have lots of books, crafts, puzzles, learning games and art.
