Let’s face it—preschool is a big deal for both kids and parents alike. It’s also been a hotly debated topic with many unanswered questions: Should you send your child to preschool at all? If so, when is the right time to do so? How do you know which preschool is right for your little one? And perhaps most importantly, how can you tell if your child is ready for preschool?
As with all things parenting, there is really no blanket answer that applies to all kids. After all, each one is unique, and what’s right for one youngster may not work at all for another. Determining the answers to these questions really comes down to your parenting instincts as well as your family values, routines, and preferences. Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to go into the situation blindly either.
