Is My Child Ready for Kindergarten?

“Is my child ready for kindergarten?” is one of the top questions Sara Sykes, Oak Knoll’s kindergarten teacher, receives from parents.  And while there are many factors that go into determining whether a child is academically, physically and emotionally prepared to start school, there are really five main pillars used to prepare a child for the next step:  social skills, reading, language, motor skills and number concepts.

If you are a parent of a child preparing to enter school, consider attending this one hour virtual workshop presented by Oak Knoll School Pre-K and kindergarten teachers on Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 9:15 a.m. Learn how to prepare your child for school with confidence.

The workshop will review:

  • Social Skills
  • Reading Readiness
  • Language

This workshop is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required to receive the Zoom webinar credentials.
