Is your child ready for school?
Children are apt to get off to a better start in school if they enter Kindergarten with certain basic skills.  The following list indicates some of the skills that children should be working on throughout the preschool years in order to be better prepared for Kindergarten.  This list does not suggest that your child must have all of these items mastered prior to Kindergarten, but if he/she has mastered most of them and is making progress toward others, he/she is probably ready to begin a successful learning experience at school.
