Wondering about Kindergarten, Transitional Kindergarten or Preschool? Being ready for Kindergarten or TK requires more than knowing ABCs and 123s. A child also needs to be ready physically, socially, and emotionally and exhibit behaviors such as: be able to sit for long periods of time quietly, take care of personal needs independently, understand and respect rules and limits, and work without a lot of adult supervision.
These resources may help you decide what’s best for your child.
