Ways to enhance your preschool or kindergarten program?

As you know, these are no longer the days of “kids will learn everything they need to know in kindergarten”. Kindergarten is far more challenging than it used to be.

The evaluation in our Kindergarten Readiness Guide covers everything! Find out exactly where each preschooler is on the spectrum of Kindergarten Readiness or exactly where each kindergartener is in relation to the curriculum and standards. Share the information with parents and together you can work to encourage strengths and improve weaknesses. Perfect for ages 3, 4, 5 and 6.

  • Assessments for Reading, Writing, Math, Speaking & Listening, Motor Skills, and Social/Emotional Development all based on state standards
  • Simple, step-by-step instructions for completing the evaluations
  • Checklists for over 100 skills to track progress throughout the year
  • Notations for Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced skill levels
  • Teaching Suggestions for over 100 skills for school and home. Useful for teachers when creating lesson plans and for giving parents strategies to use at home.
  • Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Pre-K and kindergarten
  • Lists of Additional Resources

Congratulations on helping parents and children have a successful kindergarten experience! As you know, it is so important to start early and be consistent.

We want every child’s kindergarten year to be happy, successful, and stress-free for all involved, child, teacher, and family. Please use the suggestions from this website and The Kindergarten Readiness Guide to make that happen.

We look forward to helping you create successful kindergarteners!
