Ready Set Go to Kindergarten

How do I choose the right early childhood setting?

Remember when you were studying to take your driver’s test and get that all important driver’s license? Remember the handy manual they were kind enough to provide when you were studying? Now, remember when you had your child? I went home with a lot of information about formula and diapers but not one manual to help me navigate all of the tough stuff that was yet to come. One of the earliest and most important decisions you will make for your child is which early childhood setting to place them in. Perhaps you make this decision when they are babies, perhaps when they are a bit older. Whenever it is time to decide, it’s never too early to start thinking about early childhood education.

So how do you decide? 

Remember that manual you wish they sent home from the hospital? Turns out the National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies (NACCRRA) has done it for you. They have developed a list of 38 research based indicators to help you select the right setting for your child. Covering everything from professional development for staff to parental interaction and involvement, NACCRRA guides you to the questions you should be asking.
