Advice:
1. Read to them and with them every day. Have books and magazines available. This will instill a love of reading.
2. Encourage a sense of adventure and inquiry through field trips, museums and libraries.
3. Instill a love of animals through films, pets and zoos.
4. Give as gifts toys and games that encourage inquiry and intellectual activity.
5. Praise them when they show signs of physical and mental inquiry.
6. When you talk to them physically lower your body to a level that is equal to them. This can be done by kneeling or sitting so you will be on their level.
7. Never bully, physically or mentally abuse them, this will only heighten their anxiety and will teach them success through intimidation.
8. Studies show that 70% of their intellectual growth will occur during this time. You and your spouse are a vital key to their success in life. 
9. Ask them about your daily activity with words such as why, how come and what do you think. Making them think and giving them a feeling of worth does wonders to their intellectual activity.
10. Let them know it is ok to fail, failure is a great tool for learning.
Finding the right Preschool
1. Don't rely on TV, Radio and Social Media advertisement check out the schools near you and ask for recommendations from your family, pediatrican and friends.
2. Decide which form of school you are seeking. Do you prefer the Montessori Approach, Child-Centered Approach, Family-Centered Approach, Waldorf Approach,  , Home School Approach, Tutorial Approach or a Faith-Based Approach? Sites that give additional advice on forms of Curriculum: Teach, Preschool Professor, Parents, Mental Floss, Coolgurkul, The Classroom Teaching Methods
3. Decide which is more important a school near your home or place of employment.
4. When is the school available in the morning, afternoon or at night or at all hours?
5. What are the qualifications of the teachers, cooks, administration, recreation  staff? Are they certified, trained or qualified for their positions?
6. Visit the school (I recommend  without notice). How do you feel about the school, are they welcoming, supportive of you and your child? Is it clean and safe? Do the students appear happy? How do the adults interact with the children? What is the turnover rate of the staff? Does the school have accreditation and certificates of health from the local health departments?
7. How does the staff handle discipline? Does it match your view of discipline?
8. What forms of payments do they accept and would you qualify for Federal, State or local financial aid?
