How to evaluate whether your child is ready for preschool in Hixson

Posted on 06-22-2014


Enrolling a child in preschool is an important decision for parents. It is essential to talk to your child and evaluate whether he/she is ready. There is no right or wrong answer to this. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Hixson we know how difficult this decision can be. We have compiled a list of questions you can ask yourself before enrolling your child at a daycare center.

Think about your motivation for taking your child to preschool

Some parents are full time stay at home parents, and some have demanding full time jobs. If you feel the need to offer your child a better opportunity at learning, this might assist you in your decision. If you are a stay at home mom, and need an occasional break, or choose to allow your child a chance for independence, this might be your reason. Only you know what is best for your child.

How does your child interact with others

Observing your child as he/she interacts with other children can aid you in deciding for or against preschool. When a child gets along well with other children, and makes friends easily, then he/she will most likely adapt well to preschool. If your child is shy or withdrawn, your decision might be more difficult. Preschool can work wonders in dealing with shyness. Parents should evaluate this carefully. They must consider what will best meet their needs, and that of their child.

Attachment to parents

When a child is extremely attached to their parents, and cries when you have to leave them, preschool might be the perfect choice to teach them to be independent. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Hixson, we teach our children independence and how to cope in a wide variety of situations.
