3 Things to Look For When Deciding on a School for Your Little One

Nurturing a child in a holistic manner can be an intimidating challenge for their parents

Every parent naturally aims to nurture their children emotionally, physically, socially, and intellectually. Choosing the right school that aligns with their values is one of the most important decisions a parent can make. What do you look for? What are the right questions to ask? Here are a few things that parents have told us to look for in a school:

1. Happy Learning Environment

Research has found a close relationship between a child’s learning environment and their emotional experience in class. Countless such studies have emphasized that a healthy learning environment increases students’ attention and motivates the child to learn well and think critically. 

2. Safeguarding

Nothing matters more than your child’s safety, and the American School of Bahrain ensures that it is taken care of appropriately.

Technology-based learning allows for seamless parent-teacher communication, allowing parents to follow along their child’s learning journey in almost real-time. The ASB campus makes use of a dedicated entrance for children. The classroom furniture and materials have been designed and built to the highest safety standards for young children.

3. Curriculum

These days, there are a variety of different curricula to choose from. Every school and curriculum has its own benefits, and it is hard to choose which one is perfect for your child’s future. In a rapidly developing world, with the rise of technology, artificial intelligence, and automation, education requires a holistic approach, that allows for a child’s holistic development aligned with 21st-century skills, or the 4 Cs – critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.

ASB provides research-based education that follows the American Common Core Standards that incorporate these 4Cs along with core Literacy, Math, and Science skills. Created by the US Department of State, ASB’s American curriculum is adapted with an international context for students abroad.
