Five Characteristics of High-Quality Preschool

When my son turned two-and-half, I started looking at preschools. I had a great experience in preschool, which I credit with igniting my love of learning, so naturally, I wanted to share that love with my son. I thought, I had found the perfect preschool. The school was small. It seemed nice, and friends recommended it.

But ultimately, when I went looking for preschool, I was just fumbling in the dark. What makes a good preschool? I didn’t know. I looked up a little bit of advice, but none of it seemed particularly helpful.

I certainly didn’t know what the research said.

Luckily for us, the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy and the Brookings Institute just published a promising new report about the nature of preschool in the US. Their over all main conclusion – public preschool helps provide children a boost for kindergarten (read more about a summary and policy suggestions on NPR).

But it is one area within the report that intrigued me the most and that was: The Characteristics in Pre-Kindergarten Programs that Drive Positive Outcomes. This doesn’t necessarily equate “good” in terms of preschools, but I suspect that most of us want positive outcomes for our children.

So, if you are looking for positive outcomes in preschool, what should you look for?
