Choosing a Lake County Preschool

If you have a child between the ages of 2 and 4, you have probably already begun to start thinking about preschool. While September may seem very far away, NOW is the time to decide what kind, where, and when you will be starting preschool.

Our 2016 Lake County Preschool Guide is now live and bigger and better than ever. Find the perfect school for you and your family! With so many different choices, though, how DO you decide?

Choosing a preschool can seem like a daunting task but our writer Heather has broken it down into a simple steps to help you along the way, such as defining the type of preschool (what is Waldorf?) which can help you to determine if this is the best fit for your child.

After you know what type, or types, of preschool you are looking for, you can reference our Preschool Guide and find those types in the city you need.

Another great way to get a feel for a school and see if it’s right for your child is to visit during an open house. You will get to meet the teachers, see the classrooms and get a sense of how your child will do. We share the open houses we know of monthly.
