Written by a mom of two, How to Choose the Best Preschool for Your Child tells you everything you need to know about choosing a preschool and guides you through the process step by step. After reading this book, I got a much better idea of how the system works and of what it takes to choose a preschool that fits my child well. The book starts with a brief introduction to preschool and the benefits of attending one. It then lays out the preschool search time line and offers tips for keeping organized during the search.
The book proceeds with discussions about various types of preschool programs, criteria to consider when choosing a school, what to ask and observe during a school visit, tips for helping your child get prepared for the start of preschool life, and other important topics that parents are likely to be concerned about.
I love Jenifer's writing style--smooth, clear and concise. Her book is easy to read, yet highly informative. I consider How to Choose the Best Preschool for Your Child the most comprehensive guidebook for parents looking to send their child to preschool. It'll save you considerable time and trial-and-error during the process of researching, visiting, and applying to preschools. I expect it to be as popular as the What to Expect series in the days to come. You should definitely get one while it's still hot off the press!
