Enrolling your child in school can be an exciting and scary process. Now more than ever, there are so many types of preschools with defined philosophies and practices. A school that makes you feel at home and welcomes your child into their environment while teaching morals, values, social skills, and emphasizes a foundation for their self-esteem and sense of self is a good fit. When creating a list of schools to visit, it is important to keep a list of questions in mind (or in writing) to make sure that this school is the right one for your child.
I've compiled the following questions to help you make an informed decision when deciding the best academic environment to care and teach your child.

Do you feel welcome there or like you're intruding?
