What Parents must Look for at Kinder School?
What parents must look for at a kinder school?’ Is a relevant question when it comes to admission of children in the pre-school! There are many things to be considered while selecting a school and as it is the matter of the safety and development of your child or we should say the safe development and growth of the child. It is a place where parents leave their children for many hours. Therefore, they have to be fully sure about the school. Let us look at these points which must never be ignored:
Food: Food is however optional when it comes to kinder school as some parents may not prefer outside food for the children and if they do the kitchen must be well maintained and parents must have access to it anytime for checking the way things are getting carried out.
Hygiene: Hygiene is a factor to which children are the most sensitive and if this is not taken proper care of they may fall ill. This is mainly important in the washrooms. The maids are often employed for this purpose and women are perceived as hygienists so most probably they may take good care of children with love but still they must be given proper training.
Security: Security is to be ensured by enough number of manpower to check every single square fit of the premises and also around the premises; as there are possibilities of crime against children. There must be proper cameras, security alarms and fire alarms covering every inch of the premises. The presence of these arrangements is not sufficient, these must be well-maintained and in well working condition.
Staff: The staff should be well-trained in a kinder school as this is no other industry where on the job training is only required. This is an industry which requires very special kind of quality training along with on the job thorough training as no pre-school should be ready to risk the care of children. Along with this, there has to be the staff members who are very sweet and good-hearted. The challenge is not to find good trainers but to search for the employees who look after the wash areas, the transport, the discipline, etc.
Premises: Premises means the entire area or property under the jurisdiction of the kinder school. It involves the classrooms, the play area, the mess, the library, the computer laboratory, the office area and everything. The premises must be first of all clean as hygiene is necessary for survival and cleanliness is next to godliness. Second point to be considered is closeness. There should not be any area which leads to road beyond the boundary, any wall which is broken as children may try to move to that direction as they often do out of curiosity. There must be no pit of any kind as children may not be able to pay attention and some risk may be there. No construction must be going on inside the premises and if it is taking place it should have proper manpower to pay attention that no children should go there.
