Finding the right preschool for your little can be both exciting and overwhelming. There are so many options out there you may not know how to choose. The best way start might be define what’s important to you then you will know what to look for.

Brainstorm and research

First decide on the most important considerations for you such as distance between you and the school, the kind of environment you want for your child and your budget. Then spend some time to research for a good nursery in Dubai. Talk to you friends and family and get their recommendations. There will also be many sites online to guide you.

Pay a visit

Once you shortlist the places you like it will be a good idea to visit them. Although you can get a general idea about the fees and facilities of the place by making a call it’s wiser to actually see the place beforehand. Taking your kid might be a good idea. Then you will get to see if they enjoy the place and the activities they are offered. Be sure to notice how the teachers interact with the kids. Talk to the parents who have already enrolled their kids. They will give you firsthand information about the place. Find out what they like or dislike about the place.

During your tour, notice whether the place is clean. Any nursery should have a clearly designated play area indoors and outdoors. See if the toys are clean. If food is being provided find out what is on the menu. Pay attention to the curriculum. See if that is the type of education you want for your child.

Get on a waiting list

Once you decide the best options get on their waiting lists. You may not get admission for your child right away, but don’t worry there will be openings later on. Some schools enroll at the beginning of the year and some enroll on a rolling basis.

Let your instinct guide you. More often than not it is right. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that your kid needs to go to the most expensive or the most sought after preschool in town. They don’t. If the preschool has a pleasant child-friendly environment and it gives the child appropriate mental and physical stimuli it is good enough. Without doubt the preschool should prepare your kid for kindergarten. However it must not have far too rigid a curriculum, because children need to enjoy their childhood. Once they start school they will be following a rigid curriculum for the rest of their lives.
