When you have children, they grow up fast, and it seems not long after they are born, it is time to start looking at their education. You will want to begin your child’s education early, which will give them an excellent foundation and teach them vital social skills they will need in their lives. When you are looking at various school options available, you will need to take your time deciding where to send them and ensure you do plenty of research. Below are some of the factors to consider when looking at preschools for your child in Bangkok to help you decide where to send them and give their education an excellent start.

Choose Somewhere Close To Home

You will want to start your search for a preschool in Bangkok close to home, no matter whether you have transport or rely on public transport. This is because you will want to make the daily commute to and from school as short as possible and getting around Bangkok can be slow work. So, look for the best quality preschools close to home first, and then you can search further out if nothing close is suitable.

The Curriculum Of The School

It is never too early to think about the curriculum you want your child to learn from, and you will want them to learn from the same one for the duration of their education. You will find schools that teach from curriculums around the world, including:

  • British
  • American
  • Australian
  • Chinese
  • Swiss
  • German
  • French
  • Singaporean

Consider which curriculum you prefer, and then ensure that you select a quality school that teaches from this. Continuity of education is vital for children, so your choices early on will affect them as they grow and get older, working their way through the education system.

The Class Sizes

You will also want to look at the class sizes of the schools you are looking at, and you will need to ensure the preschool you select does not have too big classes. Ideally, you will want no more than around 15 children per class in preschool, which is quite a handful for teachers and their assistants to handle.

The School Fees

You will also have to consider the schools’ fees plus the additional extras you may have to pay for throughout the term. There will be a set fee for each term they attend, and you will have to pay extra for things like food and snacks, uniforms, school transport, and extracurricular activities.
