PreK and Kindergarten

Ready for Kindergarten?

What skills do kindergarten teachers expect their new students to have?


Strong Fine-Motor Skills: Your child's hands must be strong enough to master coloring, cutting, pasting, and holding a pencil — fine-motor tasks that kids use every day in kindergarten.


The Ability to Play Well With Others: Your child will need your assistance refining essential social skills such as sharing, compromising, turn-taking, and problem-solving.


The Desire to Be Independent: Encouraging self-help skills is an important step to preparing your child for kindergarten. 


The Ability to Listen: Students must be able to concentrate on what the teacher is saying, listen carefully for directions, and tune in to the sounds in letters and words.
