Questions that arise during the transition from pre-school to kindergarten can be very difficult for parents to answer. As you plan for the year ahead, you may find yourself wondering:
• Is transportation provided?
• Will my child get rest time like in preschool?
• Will breakfast be available?
• Is the food healthy?
• How close are the bathrooms to the class?
• How long is each school day?
• Does the school support students with special needs?
• Is it easy to contact the teacher?
Most parents begin answering these questions with an online search of their local school options. Others may ask friends or family for recommendations, or they may even go to their neighborhood school for a visit. The one thing all parents should keep in mind, however, is that families in Texas have a wide variety of options to choose from, meaning that they are not limited to choosing the closest school in their area.
