The first day of kindergarten is exciting for children and their families. It is a new beginning for learning and developing friendships, confidence, and independence. However, it is also normal for children and parents to feel anxious about this new adventure. Osceola Reads is here to help parents and caregivers prepare children for a successful launch into kindergarten.
If your child is enrolled in VPK, start by having a conversation with their teacher. By discussing strengths and weaknesses, you can get a better understanding of how to help your child prepare for next school year. Osceola Reads has created a skills checklist to help guide you. This is a great place to start because once you know what skills your child is struggling with, you can ask their teacher for tips to fill in the gap.
