What is School Readiness?
Children typically start school between the ages of 4-6 years, and sometimes it can be difficult to know if and when they are ready. Parents can often wonder when is the right time for their child to start the exciting new world that is school. Should they wait one more year? Are they ready? What if they fall behind their peers? While primary school is certainly a big change from preschool, it is an exciting and vital step in every child’s development. Kindergarten presents wonderful new challenges and opportunities, particularly with regard to a child’s speech and language skills.
At Talkshop, we work with children of all levels and ages to help them be their best when it comes to school readiness. Below we have gathered some information about what is expected for children in their final years of preschool to help you decide how ready your child is to begin school.
