School Satisfaction Survey for Kindergarten Parents
New parents talk. Parents with children in the first year of school can have a significant influence on your school's future. Why? They are often in more contact with other parents of young children considering schools. You want to know what they are thinking!
When young children start school Grandparents will want news. Aunties and Uncles will likely take more interest. Family friends and neighbours will ask how they are going at school. Surveying new parents in the first year of school is essential.
The Kindergarten Survey can be supplied in both print and online. We encourage the combination to cater for a wider range of parent preferences.
