Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten?

by Learning Care Group | June 23, 2011 | Kindergarten Readiness

We’ve united with Nickelodeon and Dora’s Beyond the Backpack to bring you even more great tools to nurture literacy development and prepare your child for Kindergarten.

Nickelodeon uses the ever-popular children’s heroine, Dora the Explorer, to help ensure that your little one is ready for school when the time comes. Nickelodeon’s Beyond the Backpack program promotes Kindergarten readiness with a comprehensive checklist and resources for you. The checklist provides questions for assessing your child’s development by focusing on four specific areas:

  • Cognitive Skills
  • Social and Emotional Skills
  • Health and Wellness Basics
  • Parent Involvement in Schools

In addition, you’ll find great activities to help your child develop and excel in language, math and other areas. It’s the perfect time to get a head start on Kindergarten, so download the checklist today.
