Children don’t come with an operating manual, and every parent has questions now and then about raising them. Hanna Perkins’ Parent Chats provide a helpful discussion, led by child development experts in a comfortable, informal atmosphere of mutual interest and support.
Is it too early to think about Kindergarten
Kindergarten does more than introduce young children to the first level of academic learning. It fills an important developmental role by helping them with the social-emotional skills required to succeed in the classroom.
Everyone wants their child to transition smoothly into kindergarten, but a child who is not yet developmentally ready for this step will struggle. Do you know the signs of readiness? The biggest question for many parents of a child who is attending preschool – or even toddler programs – is “how do I know if it’s too soon to think about kindergarten?”
This series will help parents to answer that question over four 90-minute discussions on the following topics:
- Self Regulation
- Tying it all together
The sessions are led by child development experts Judy Pitlick and Carol Paull. Cost is $10 per session or $35 for all four. To make sure it’s fun as well as educational, each session includes refreshments and door prizes.
Choose to attend morning or evening sessions based on your schedule and availability of child care.
