When pre-registration for pre-school and primary education approaches, we are immersed in a very important moment: we have to find a good school for our children. But among so many centers, it is sometimes difficult to choose. Today Huntington Learning Center give you 7 keys that will help you to find what you are looking for in a school.
1- The history: when you are browsing the centers we advise you to look for information about their beginnings. Who founded it, in what year, for what reason, if the uniform is applied, if there is separation by gender in the classrooms, etc? You can know details that help you discover if it can be a good school for your children.
2-Values: almost all schools have their own website where you can find interesting data. Investigate what values identify the center and how they transmit them to the students.
3- Educational model: digital natives are children born with the Internet and mobile devices in their lives, they are much more curious and independent, they bore the traditional teaching method and are used to interacting with digital content. A good school adapts to changes, rethinks its offer and tries to update its contents to apply them to new technologies.
4- The facilities: find out how the classrooms are, if you have spaces such as auditoriums, theater or conference room, how is the dining room, if you have a large patio, play areas, etc. Since your children are going to spend several years of their life at school, at least you make sure it is a well-kept place.
5- The indispensable services: check if they have a dining room service, pick up and / or return by bus, tutoring service, etc.
6 – Schedules: normally all schools start at the same time, but it is worth checking what schedule each one meets to detect those that do not fit with your routine.
7- Extracurricular activities: some centers offer extracurricular activities but sometimes they are a little limited or they are very focused on sports.
Offer a good school experience to your children, discover the differences between the centers of your city and enroll them in a good school. Because the most important thing is that they have a good time, feel comfortable and be happy.
