Choosing the right Kindergarten for your child can be a daunting task, especially in Chicago where there are so many options.  With so many different kindergarten philosophies, how do you know which philosophy works for you and your family?

You will learn about arts-integrated, inquiry-based, responsive, and differentiated instruction, how they overlap, and where they differ. You will walk away from this discussion understanding:


1. How to ask the right questions to figure out which philosophy and instruction is the best fit for your child

2. The benefits of each philosophy and type of instruction

3. What a typical day is like in each type of classroom
