Caring for Children since 1954
Things to Look for Before Your Child Starts Kindergarten
  • Can my child be alone in a strange place outside the home without crying or behaving overly fearful?
  • Can my child attend to his personal needs without difficulty?
  • Can my child follow spoken directions, particularly several at one time?
  • Can my child keep his attention on a task long enough to finish it?
  • Can my child play with other children without being overly fearful or overly aggressive? Can my child take turns, share, follow the rules and play fair?
  • Can my child tell people his needs with a loud enough voice, a clear voice, and using the right words?
  • Does my child want to go to kindergarten?
