Kindergarten Readiness

Many parents are probably not even thinking about next school year, but now’s the time! While we encourage you to ask questions, tour buildings and meet our staff members to prepare for your child's first day of school, it’s not too early to ask yourself - "Is my child ready to start kindergarten?"

Kindergarten teacher, Carol Wild has prepared a helpful Parent Blog entry for parents as they prepare their child for his or her first day of school.
