The transition between preschool and kindergarten is a major step in a young child’s life. It can also be an anxious time for many preschoolers and their parents. Most experts agree that in order for your child to have a successful kindergarten year they need to be prepared!
Beginning this process early can make the transition easier. Many of you may have preschoolers who will be moving up into kindergarten this year and who will need to be prepared for this next step in their lives. Beginning the preparation for this important milestone early on will make the transition more manageable.
In order to help this transition we have created and compiled a variety of resources for you to use. We hope that you find them informative and helpful 🙂
