Pregnancy & Parenting: Choosing school for your child
Choosing a school for your children is an important decision because it affects the present of the boys but also their future. For many it is a time of many nerves and uncertainty, but it is best to take this step easy to choose correctly.
For parents who have not yet made a decision and do not know where to start, can follow this guide. Here are guidelines what are the points to be taken into account. You can sort this list based on what are the determining factors for you. Then just a matter of ordering the points according to your priorities.
Religion or ideology
If you want to instill in your child your religion or if instead you wish to receive a secular education, it is important to know the importance of the issue of religion in school. Also want to know what kind of values you instill. All schools, even though they call themselves a-political, give your child a kind of values that should be commensurate with those you teach him at home.
Although education of your children is a major topic of the family economy, if you really think you should continue to pay your child’s school in the future. This is even more relevant in the case of people who have more children who are about to enter school age and will probably go to the same school.
Review the information on the website or brochures from schools and requests for meetings with their managers know what is the teaching methodology used. There are schools that are more stringent, others who follow children’s interests over the program, some that encourage more to those who have less difficulty or who pay less attention in class. Knowing your child, you know what the most appropriate methodology for it.
Management and teaching team
Looking for references from teachers and especially the staff conducting the institution.
If your child will spend the lunch hour at school, make sure not only that has a nutritious and varied diet but also to use quality food.
In addition to secure facilities and in good condition, the school should be tailored to the specific needs of your child, such as sporting interests or disabilities. If your child does not have mobility impairments or other but the school is accessible for all, this will give you a guideline on integration that values inculcated in the school.
Number of students in each room
The classrooms with fewer students have the potential to put more attention, especially in the case of children more or less interest need to be highly stimulated.
It is not all study. Artistic and sports activities will give your child physical health and improve social relationships. Do not underestimate it.
And always draws on the experience of others who have already lived this moment!
