Is Your Child Ready for School?

February is kindergarten registration time.  It is the next step in your child’s learning journey.

A child’s journey to school starts at the moment of birth.  Children learn by:

  • Touching
  • Hearing
  • Tasting
  • Seeing
  • Smelling
  • Moving
  • Doing (one example is playing)

Here are some important tips for parents to help children learn:

  • Lots of love
  • Talking and listening
  • Play, play and more play
  • Daily physical activity
  • Good nutrition
  • Daily routines
  • Regular health and development check-ups

Remember: You are your child’s greatest teacher and role model!

The online booklet Learning to Play and Playing to Learn: What Families Can Do  is a parent resource based on the research of what, how, and when your child learns. It is filled with up to date information, helpful tips and checklists relating to growth, development, health, nutrition, routines and self-help.
