K-8 private schools offer your child a solid start on their education. These schools are renowned for their safety and their ability to offer your child close attention with the advantage of smaller class sizes and highly qualified instructors. If your young child has special needs or is a gifted learner, there is no better option than to enrol him or her in a private elementary school where he or she will get the attentive instruction required.

There are numerous types of private elementary schools, as well. Private boarding schools offer your child an immersion in his or her education. Montessori schools are a favoured way to offer your child an elementary education that promotes creativitiy and self-expression.

Private elementary schools or secondary?

There are various schools of thought (no pun intended) when it comes to deciding whether (if you must make a choice) to send your child to private grade school or a private high school. As we all know, early years are critical to a child's development. On the other hand, the effects of a high school education will be felt in university and will be remembered longer into adulthood.

Of course, private elementary school is a longer commitment and it is good advice to switch schools when there is a natural break. By this, we mean the time between grade school and secondary school, instead of in the middle of a child's tenure at the elementary level, for example. If you child is experiencing bullying or any other kind of school trouble, it can be smart to switch to a private school, although this may not solve all your child's problems.

In any case, be sure to fully explore what a private elementary school has to offer.
