The importance of when a child starts school- especially with a summer or fall birthday - can determine success or difficulty with future years of learning. Developmental factors in social, emotional, cognitive and physical areas are indicators of readiness starting at the kindergarten year. This packet offers an explanation of how necessary it is to get the child into a proper grade level starting at kindergarten.
A checklist of kindergarten readiness skills will give parents and educators a way to assess the child. Another skill list for parents is offered to help prepare the child for a fun and successful start on their school career!
