Kindergarten Here I Come...

What does your mommy or daddy gut tell you about your child starting Kindergarten this year? Is your child ready to move on to the "big" school? Teachers are not looking for you to drill your children on academic skills: ABC's, numbers, shapes, and colors.

 There are equally, if not MORE, important readiness skills that set the stage for your child's learning. Raising an eager learner is the goal, and it can be achieved easily through play and day-to-day activities.

Top Readiness Skills Teachers Look for:
  • Enthusiasm toward learning
  • Solid oral-language skills
  • The ability to listen
  • The desire to be independent
  • The ability to play well with others
  • Strong fine-motor skills
  • Basic letter and number recognition
