4 Questions to Ask Preschool Directors 

4 Questions to Ask Preschool DirectorsWhen you are looking for a preschool, it’s important to ask questions in order to make a well-informed decision about your child’s education. Once you find a preschool with an opening and other general criteria you’re looking for, it’s time to get down to brass tacks.

Here are 4 questions to ask preschool directors:

What is your educational philosophy?

One of the most important things to ask about is the educational philosophy of the preschool. Philosophies can differ significantly, so it’s important to find a preschool with a philosophy you believe in as well.

Questions can include:

  1. Is your philosophy developmental, academic, faith-based, or something else?
  2. How does this philosophy affect your class size?
  3. How do you encourage learning among the students?
  4. Does your philosophy support individual or group learning more?

What qualifications have the teachers earned?

Qualification requirements can vary greatly between facilities, so it’s essential to ask what they are at your prospective facility. Ask about the turnover rate, teacher-child ratio, and any additional training.

What is the discipline procedure?

Each preschool deals with discipline differently, so be sure to get a firm understanding of how your potential school handles things like biting and disruptive behavior, as well as parent notification. 

What are your security policies?

These days, security is of the utmost importance. Be sure to ask about your potential preschool’s security features and policies.

Questions can include:

  • How many entrances and exits are there?
  • Is the play area fenced?
  • What security measures are in place throughout the facility?
