Many parents feel lost when it comes to finding the right preschool for their child. They may not know where to start in choosing from the various programs in their neighborhood or city (Private, Public, Cooperative, Part Day, Full Day, Religious Affiliated).
Parents may have no clue what terms like Waldorf, Montessori, Play Based, or Reggio-Emilia Inspired programs mean, nor what short term and long term influence these philosophies of early childhood education might have on their child's growth and development.
The applications themselves seem daunting ( I need to write an essay?), not to mention the entire admissions process, complete with deadlines, interviews and wait lists.
