Is My Child Ready for Kindergarten?
How Do I Know?
At this time of year we always get lots of questions about whether a child is ready for Kindergarten. This year, I contacted Stephaine Jefferson of Little Scholars and asked her expert advice. Here is her answer…
As another Summer is coming to an end, we begin to prepare once again for the upcoming school year. Many of you with young children will begin the search for a Kindergarten program to send them to next year. As a parent of young children, I know how stressful the process of testing for Kindergarten can be for a parent. Although you may be confident in your child’s abilities, you may not know what he will do once he is in a private room with a lady he doesn’t know, or in a classroom with a group of children he may or may not know.
One of the reasons I developed our Kindergarten Readiness Assessment was to provide parents with a better idea of their child’s skills before going into a testing situation. Here are some resources that may help better explain our KRA and its benefits.
