With many schools holding Kindergarten registration, it  seem like September is so far away. Here are some tips that we suggeste you refer to before making any final decisions. 

Academic content should not be the focal point of choice. Teaching styles and curriculum should be taken into consideration.  Your child’s social and emotional maturity should be considered as well.

·       Private vs. Public… What are your plans after 1st grade? These are things to take into account. Is private school your choice to give your child a bit of a “head start” on foundational skills? Are class sizes important to you?  Will you eventually go to public school?

·       Moving into elementary school with peers: While it can make things a tad easier for your child, it will not hinder them from being successful in Kindergarten. The change from 4-5 years to 5-6 years is amazing and drastic all at once. At 5 and 6 years of age they are interested in new and different things. Apart of the elementary school experience is interacting with new children and adults.

·       Ask your self, “What is best for my child?” Go with what your instinct tells you!
