Kindergarten Readiness

 

What is kindergarten readiness?

 You might think that it's most important for children to start kindergarten knowing their ABCS, numbers, shapes and colors. But there are equally, if not more, important skills that prepare your child for success in school.

Raising an eager learner is the goal, and it can be achieved  through play and day-to-day activities. Here are the top readiness skills that kindergarten teachers look for:

  • Excitement toward learning
  • Talking about thoughts and feelings
  • Listening to others
  • Desire to be independent
  • Playing well with others and taking turns
  • Following simple instructions
  • Ability to hold and use a pencil or crayon
  • Recognizing numbers and letters
