Every year, parents ask the question "how do we know if our child is ready for Young 5s or Kindergarten?" Since every child is different, our teachers suggest thinking about the following items to help your child have a successful start in school:
Is your child able to separate from parents or guardians for several hours?
Can your child listen and follow directions?
Can your child share and take turns?
Does your child treat other children with kindness?
Is your child able to identify basic colors?
Is your child able to retell familiar stories?
Does your child know the ABC song, some nursery rhymes, and poems?
Can your child identify some letters, such as the letters in their name?
Is your child able to count (1-10) and recognize some numbers?
Does your child independently dress and tend to bathroom needs?
