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?

2. The benefits of each philosophy and type of instruction
3. What a typical day is like in each type of classroom
