With Katy ISD schools starting this week a lot of parents are looking into before and after school care options, especially with the time changes to some of our schools.
The good news is that Katy offers a lot of options and most of these are not just a childcare program but offer curriculum enriched programs with various topics and homework assistance by certified teachers.
How to find the best program for your child?
All of these programs have their own unique curriculum and play structure. It's always best to research to see to find the best fit for your child.
Safety- What is their pick-up procedures? What kind of CPR and training is required of the staff?
Ask about transportation- Most of these program provide transportation to local school. Be sure and see if your child's school is one that they service. Do they use carseats?
Curriculum- Different programs focus on different curriculum. Do you want something STEM based? Language immersion? Play based? Homework assistance?
Take a tour- All of these programs listed below offer tours. This is the best way to get a feel for the program and ask your questions.
"I chose Tigerland because it's great reputation, the majority of the staff have been there for years and the pricing is reasonable," says Vicky Hegemeyer.
With so many choices in Katy, with a little research it should be easy to find the best fit for your child.
