Kindergarten is an important milestone for both children and parents as they take the first step in their formal education. Kindergarten helps a child develop social, emotional, and academic skills. Preparing your child for kindergarten requires a big effort both from you and your child. But how do you know if your child is ready for kindergarten this fall? Here are some factors that will help you determine if your child is ready for kindergarten or if you should hold off another year.
After I graduated from high school, I went straight to college, even though I was very unsure of what career field I wanted to enter. I completed my four years and earned a degree that helped me secure a job relatively quickly. However, I soon learned that the career I chose was unfulfilling for me, but the thought of going back to learn something new just seemed too overwhelming. I wanted to enter the field of healthcare, and one day I got a flyer in the mail from a local nursing school that offered certificate programs that only took a year to complete. I felt like it was "fate," and I was soon enrolled in evening classes. I really like helping others, so I want to help others make good educational decisions. I plan to post tips for people of all ages on my new education blog!
