Kindergarten can set the stage for a child’s entire school career, which is both exciting and daunting. To help prepare your child for the next stage in life, it’s important to know what faculty will look for in Kindergarten readiness. For students entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2020, students must be 5 years old by September 30, 2020.
