You have to give your kids a head start in education. This includes a lot of parental provided education in the first years before kindergarten. Then preschool is a good option. I mean if your child is going to have to go through 12 years of public education and then college, it is good to get them established into formal learning routines early. My wife and I were looking for a nice San Jose preschool for our little girls to attend. We wanted a nurturing environment with dedicated teachers. We wanted a place that was staffed well enough that the student to teacher ration would provide for a lot of one-on-one interaction and instruction for our girls.
All parents want the best for their children. Just like my mom and dad wanted me to have it better and easier than they had it, I want the same for my daughters. It is just a natural thing to want. However, you do have to consider your location, the public school system you have where you live, your budget for education and a whole lot more. We are very fortunate to have a San Jose preschool that we found that is extraordinary in what they provide the students. They have infant care that keeps your child with the same caregiver each day. That is a nice touch of stability every child needs. This is very helpful if your work situation demands that you leave you baby in the care of others while you work. You want the peace of mind about the care your baby is receiving.
We were fortunate to be able to care for our twins along with family while still working full time jobs. Now we are sending them to a preschool to ready them for the school system. We wanted a curriculum that would be academic as well as providing physical training. It is so easy for children today to become very sedentary, and this is not going to happen with our girls. The San Jose preschool we picked has sports and physical training as well as academic work while all being fun for preschoolers.
