Dear Future Parents,
Today, I want to talk about how to choose the right fit for your child. I’d like to talk to you not from an administrators point of view or from a Healthy Beginning’s employees perspective, but from a parent, like you might be. What do we want as parents when looking at a prospective preschool? I know what I was looking for when I was looking for a school, for my soon the three year old in 2016. I wanted safety, education and again safety. I began to tour schools from Dallas to Plano, not just Montessori mind you. Every time I went into a school, I made a list of pros and cons and began to develop a list of which was the best in my mind. This one was the best in education, this one had lower student to teacher ratios, this one had organic food choices and so on and so on. I wanted to pick the best! That’s what we all want as parents, the best for our children. It was hard to chose. Some were a definite NO, while others had strengths in some areas. When I walked in to Healthy Beginnings Montessori House and took a tour with Tami the Director and Owner, everything changed. I didn’t have go through the grueling torcher of questioning myself, “Is this school better than this one?”. I went from, choosing the best, out of a list of possibilities, to knowing this is where I wanted my child to be. See coming from an education background, I though I knew all there was to teaching children. Until I found the place that truly followed child. It sounds so simple, but it meant and changed everything for me. Tami explained, how as an authentic Montessori School they followed the child and intrinsically the child knew best.
Of course now being a part of the team, I am biased, but I will never forget the tangible knowing that came to me when I walked into this school, and that’s all I hope to impart to any parent. So when choosing a school, don’t choose the best out of a list of schools. Choose the school where when you walk in you just know, This is where I want my child to be.
