Kindergarten Readiness

Starting school is an exciting time for children and families – the information in this packet can help you both get ready for that milestone day. It's designed for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds as they prepare for kindergarten. 

Use this as a guide for fun ideas. Include family members and friends in the activities. Remember that play is an important part of learning. Your child learns best when they are spending time with you or other caring adults and doing activities that are fun and interesting.

Children develop at their own pace and ‘typical’ development can vary greatly from child to child. 

School readiness is much more than knowing letters and numbers. Children who are ready for kindergarten have good social, self-help, and physical skills, and are developing a love of learning.
