5 Tips For Every Mom Looking For Schools


It’s that time when it’s back to school! If you haven’t selected your child’s school or even looking to switch schools. I wanted to share this excellent resource to help when choosing your child’s school. It is a great guide to get you started on your journey of looking for new schools this year. 

  1. Observe Your Child: Ask yourself (parents, caregivers) questions, and think about what kind of learner they are? Do you prefer a smaller classroom size or a larger one? What is your child’s personality type? These questions might arise during learning about your child and new schools. 
  2. Scholarship and Funding: Explore options and research what schools in your area accept the Step Up Program, also Florida Tax Credit Scholarship, or the Family Empowerment Scholarship
  3. Visit Several Open Houses:
        1. Find out the dates for an open house, and add them to your calendar.
        2. Search by a specific zip code and pick the top three schools to visit.
        3. Make a list of questions to ask the teachers.It would be wonderful if all family members could attend. It makes it a family event, and you will be able to get a glimpse into the culture of that particular school and also see how your child interacts with others in a new environment. 

I researched and worked alongside school directors, parents, teachers, and community members and curated a list of questions to consider when choosing your child’s school. Many parents expressed concerns about the spacing between the children because of COVID-19, but it is hard to keep the kids away from each other when they are playing and having fun. 

Becoming a new mom I had so many ups and downs, and I wish we had this information when searching for my daughter’s schools. Check out the “Top 15 Questions To Ask Your Child’s School”. You are welcome to take it to the schools you visit. The entire staff and everyone at that location are always very inviting and confident in providing information about the goals and aspirations of their students. Having your child attend a private school offers an experience for each child because they get one-to-one attention in a nurturing learning environment. Here is one Open House you can add to the calendar JLP Inspired Minds to the top three list of schools to visit this month on August 6, 2022
