Don't Let The Thought Of Kindergarten Scare You: Rely On Our Kindergarten Readiness Checklist!

It's that time of year when we must make a decision regarding school placement for next fall!  We have to decide, is he ready for Kindergarten or should I place him in a T-K program?  This is a big decision and it can be tough!  My advice is to first, trust your instinct.  Next, listen to your current teacher.  Ask her opinion during parent-teacher conferences.  Thirdly, run it by your pediatrician.  If you still have doubts, come to us for a free screening.

In the meantime, take a glance at our Kindergarten Readiness Checklist.  I just shared it with a preschool teacher this morning for her to use in her parent-teacher conferences.  Perhaps it will help you feel confident in your decision.  As well, do not hesitate to call one of our therapists, who are specialists in child development, with any additional questions that you may have. We're here to ensure that your child is successful in school!
