Choosing the right classroom

Here are some things to consider as you choose a pre-K program for your child:

  • Location: Do you prefer having a program located close to home? Close to work? Close to a childcare provider?
  • Transportation: Are you able to deliver & pick up your child daily or do you need transportation?
  • Childcare: Do you have other children needing childcare and would like them at the same place? Do you need childcare for your 4-year-old before or after the pre-K portion of the day?
  • Half Day vs. Full Day: Do you have a flexible schedule or need to work around your work schedule?
  • Cost: Can you afford a program without assistance from one of the Kalamazoo County Pre-K funding partners or do you need to be approved for funding first?

Visiting a classroom

We also encourage you to contact programs to schedule a tour of the facility. This is one of the best ways for you to determine if the program meets the needs of your family. Here are five things to notice as you visit and assess a preschool program:

  • Adults talk to children in nurturing and encouraging ways.
  • When children are behaving inappropriately, teachers focus on helping them.
  • The classroom is fun and joyful.
  • Children are active.
  • Staff are supported—and seem happy.
