Are you looking for a choice in your child’s education? If you are thinking about going “private,” then we have a perfect resource for you – the Tots2Tweens Featured Private Schools page.
Whether you’re looking for a specific religious-based education, or one that focuses on the specific needs of your child, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. Why do some parents insist on educating through private schools? Private schools tend to have smaller class sizes, lots of activities and additional programs often not found in public schools.
Financial assistance is another area to be considered. Some private schools can cost as much as a year in college! Like all investments, you will want to weigh the cost and how it may impact your family’s finances. You will want to find out if the school offers financial assistance, scholarships or has access to grants that may help alleviate any financial burden.
Do your research – visit the school, take a tour, talk with parents and ultimately see what school “fits” with you and your child’s needs. Have a list of questions prepared – think about the things that will specifically impact or interest your child. For instance, if your child loves sports, you’ll want to know if the school offers a sporting program. Or perhaps you want to make sure they’re especially prepared for certain academics (like math, science or writing). You’ll want to ask about the curriculum that the school follows and teaching methods used. Finally, you’ll need to make sure that you will be able to easily transport your child to and from school or ask about transportation options.
