Is a Small Preschool ok ? Advice needed!

Prar - posted on 08/18/2012 ( 3 moms have responded )




My child who will go to Kindergarten next year is in a preschool /daycare which has only 3 children. The others have already graduated from there . The teachers are loving and experienced and will retire next year ,so they wont get anymore children .
Is it ok for my child to be in this small preschool /daycare or does she need more interaction ? How much interaction is enough ?

Need some advice !

Thank you !

Thank you again Christine.

There are people who are strongly suggesting that small preschool is not ok and my child needs to learn to "survive the fittest" in a bigger place with more kids before she starts regular school.

Is this "survival of fittest" approach needed at such a young age ?

I would appreciate the thoughts of experienced parent (s) in this helpful forum ...

Thank you

The smaller preschool size could in turn be very beneficial for your child. They will receive more attention with the classroom activities, still get to utilize their social skills and develop a liking for school easily. My daughter attended a smaller sized preschool and it has helped her blossom in kindergarten.
