Ways to help your child prepare for their PreK year…

  1.   Count EVERYTHING! 
  2.   Read to them as well as read WITH them.  Have your child flip the pages of a favorite book, telling you the story in their own words.  Grab a book for yourself and the two of you have a time of silent reading.
  3.  Practice Patience.  Expect your child to sit at meal time for twenty to thirty minutes


Ways to help prepare your child for preschool…

  1.    Have them use the potty completely independently. 
  2.   Read, Read, Read!

  5.    Have them pick-up small objects and move to another container. (fine motor)
