The Advantages of a Private Preschool

Every parent wants to start their child out on the right foot for academic success. Preschool lays the foundation for education and the preschool setting you choose can make all the difference in the world.

When it comes to choosing a preschool, you have two options: You can either send your child to a private or a public setting. If you want to instill strong educational roots, here’s a look at some of the reasons why you may want to opt for a private setting:

  • Private schools tend to have smaller class sizes. This means that your child will be able to get more one-to-one attention from the teachers than he would be able to if he were enrolled in a public school.
  • Private preschools are more likely to encourage parent participation than public schools. Many private preschools ask for parent volunteers to help out with art projects, to arrange special events and just to come in and read a story or two.

Private schools very often have more supplies than public schools, and these supplies tend to be newer. Because parents pay tuition at a private setting, a percentage of those funds are allocated to supplies for the children.
