Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten?
One of the biggest moments in the life of a parent is when they send their children off to their first year of school. It can be both wonderful and nerve wracking. They might be asking themselves, “Are they ready? What if the classroom moves too quickly for them? Have I done everything I can do to prepare them? Is there anything I can do to help?”
There absolutely is.
Moving from a home environment into the classroom can be a huge shift for small children. In recent years, both schools and kindergarten teachers have begun to put an increased focus on academics, at the expense of the social side of school. This has created a large gap for many children who are entering school for the first time.
Instead of learning how to navigate the classroom and their relationships with the teacher and other students, they are instead thrown straight into the deep end of academics. But there is far more to thriving in Kindergarten than reading, writing, and math skills! What can we do to help small children transition from their home life into their first year in the classroom at Kindergarten?
