Kindergarten Readiness Information
When many parents try to prepare their children for kindergarten, they focus on trying to teach the same skills the child will be learning in kindergarten. They may drill the child in how to count and say the alphabet. They may play regular exercises in which the child demonstrates an understanding of colors, sizes, and shapes.
What often gets lost in this academic approach to kindergarten readiness are opportunities for informal learning everyday-learning about relationships, feelings, and about objects and their representations. There are many different types of learning such as learning about cause-and effect relationships, learning through trial and effort, learning through logical or deductive reasoning, and learning what's different and what's the same.
The best way to prepare children for kindergarten is to encourage the child's curiosity and learning in many ways, about many things.
