Preschool and Kindergarten Readiness

Time: 7:00 PM

Preschool and Kindergarten Readiness

            With Dr. Cheryl Kemerer, M.D., Pediatrician
            Wednesday, August 6; 7 p.m.
            Sycamore Room
Back-to-school time can be both exciting and stressful for children and parents alike. This is especially true if your child will be entering preschool or kindergarten.  Many parents wonder what their school's expectations will be, how they can know if their child is ready, and how they can help to ensure readiness and ease this important transition.  We will discuss some developmental expectations for preschool and kindergarten readiness, including self help and self-regulation skills, social and emotional skills, language skills, and fine and gross motor skills.  We will also talk about ways that parents can help their child to attain these skills and be ready to start their journey through school successfully.Click here to register
