Where should I send my child to school? It’s one of the most frequent questions we get at Providence Moms Blog. We get emails about it. It’s asked in our Community + Conversation Group, you contact us on Facebook and even on Instagram, always wondering the same thing: How do I figure out which school will be the right fit for my child and my family?
It is a tremendously daunting process, and while we can’t tell you which school will be perfect for you, we CAN take some of the legwork out of researching what is out there.
