Gearing up for Kindergarten

The preschool years go by fast, don’t they? If your child’s preschool years are coming to an end, your thoughts are probably turning toward kindergarten. With that comes many mixed emotions, for both you and your child.

Kindergarten can set the stage for a child’s entire school career, which is both exciting and daunting. To help prepare your child for the next stage in life, it’s important to know what teachers will look for in kindergarten readiness. Richard Peterson, vice president of education at Kiddie Academy, has put together a list to help guide you and your child. Soon they will be on their way!

Kiddie Academy’s On My Way curriculum helps prepare children that are entering kindergarten using a literacy-based program of units, further organized into weekly themes, which are explored throughout all subject areas and activity learning centers. School days are filled with fun, challenging activities designed to inspire children to create, move and interact. The five year old program is designed to provide the learning and social activities to meet your child’s needs. For more information on kindergarten readiness, visit kiddieacademy.com.
