TOP 3 FEATURES EVERY PARENT SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR IN A SCHOOL FOR THEIR KIDS-
Picking a school for a kid is perhaps the second most important decision any parent can make — apart from deciding to have the kid in the first place.
Make the right decision and you could put them on a path toward lifelong learning, a prestigious college education and a successful career. Choose wrong, and well, you know.
Most times, life decisions like moving to a new place or changing jobs would require parents to make an adjustment in the educational timeline of their children.
This feature contains 3 top features every parent should look out for in a school for their kids.
The environment of the potential being considered for the child is of utmost importance. A 2012 report revealed that a child’s learning environment could make the difference in his educational pursuit. It is imperative that you look out for schools that have an enabling learning environment so as to give the child maximum opportunities at not just learning but hands-on practicalization of concepts learned.
It is often said in some quarters that on an average, students spend more of their productive time with their teachers than with their own parents in a week; and so a teacher exhibits as much influence in a child as the parents – if not more.
If this is true, then it is of top importance that every parent should check for the kind of staff a school has before letting their kids begin or continue their academic journey in such school. Look at the quality of the school staff generally – how hospitable are they? What is their general disposition to children? Ask the questions. A good school will be too happy to answer each and every question a parent pose. Why? They understand that a parent’s most important treasure is the child and as such, they would want to help groom the child to standard. So, watch out for the school staff.
Apart from the environment and staff which most schools have covered in detail, one key area that could be a deal-maker for parents in choosing is the area of technology ad student interactional aid. The more open a school is to technology, the better for the child. The world is moving at a fast pace and technology is the major catalyst.
