Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best age to start daycare?
Studies have shown that children are generally ready for daycare by as early as 12 months old. We accept 2 1/2 to 5-year-old children.
What is the best age for preschool?
Most preschools consider an appropriate preschool age to be around three to four years old, but this isn't a magic number for every child. Preschool readiness depends on a lot more than age.
Is preschool better than staying at home?
Here is an interesting finding by the U.S. Department of Education: children in high-quality preschool programs are more likely to develop high literacy skills. Furthermore, preschools can also prevent children from falling behind academically, ensuring that they keep up with their peers.
Are kids who go to preschool more successful?
Research shows that kids who attend quality preschool may have higher math and reading skills, are better prepared for kindergarten, behave better in class, and are more likely to graduate from high school and attend college.
