How do you choose a pre-school when there are so many great choices available in the Charlottesville area?
A pre-school is a place that partners with parents in developing their child. The folks at First Baptist Early Childhood Development Center say you want to look for a pre-school that is open to parents being involved and teachers who are energetic and engaging with the children.
You also want to find a pre-school that has activities that involve open-ended learning that teaches the "whole child" - the heart and soul and mind and strength of the child.
The heart is their social and emotional development. The soul is their spiritual development. The mind is their cognitive development. And finally, the strength is their physical development.
