Kindergarten Readiness is an important part of healthy child development. All children are different and learn at their own pace. This calendar will help you plan activities that will help your child grow in the skills needed to start kindergarten. Children do better in school if they know more than just letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. They should have good social and physical skills, and enjoy learning new things. Use the guide below as you work with your child to build those skills and get ready for kindergarten.
