5 Reasons To Consider A Private Preschool


If you're looking for a quality preschool for your child, consider the advantages of a private school:

1. Private preschools have smaller classes which offer improved teacher-student interactions. -   In a smaller class setting, children receive the attention that they need to encourage creative learning and critical thinking.  These skills are important for greater academic performance, and the increased attention from teachers will catch any possible learning challenges and address them in a proactive manner with patience and encouragement.


2. Parent involvement is encouraged in private preschools. -   Teachers and parents work together to find the best learning track for the students.  Any concerns that a parent may have are addressed with deep consideration and solutions are generated through cooperative dialogue.  Since private preschools are not subject to the same state regulations as public schools, they are able to by-pass the focus on standardized testing and develop a curriculum that can better meet parent expectations.


3.  Columbia Academy offers quality education in a number of locations. -   Since not all preschools are built on the same academic principles, parents will want to research and consider the track record and reputation of the school before enrolling.  Columbia Academy has been a respected institution since 1991 and is one of the most respected preschools in Maryland with a strong philosophy for encouraging a sense of ethics and a desire for education in their students.


4.  Private preschools start students on a track that can facilitate higher learning opportunities. -   Students who graduate from a private pre-school go on to achieve higher academic success and recognition, which prepares them for strong career paths and productive lives as adults.


5.  Children who attend private preschools have more positive peer interactions. -   With smaller class sizes, children are encouraged to bond as a group and not form cliques.  Studies from preschools in Maryland have shown that this inclusive philosophy lead to long friendships, a sense of altruism, and better socialization skills as the children mature in their development.
