Is someone at your house going off to, “Big school,” next year?
It’s hard to believe, but most area districts are registering next year’s kindergarten class now or soon.
If you’re wondering if your child is ready, I think you’ll love this mini series of posts I did with local experts who know all about area schools.
- Here is a detailed post on how to help your child get ready for kindergarten. It has information on local classes, as well as a list of important skills South Sound experts I talked with said your child should have.
- I also have a post for you on the issue of keeping children back for an extra year.
If you’ve been thinking about having a child with a summer birthday wait a year, you’ll want to read it. It has lots of thoughtful pointers, and readers have left some great comments, too.
If your child isn’t quite kindergarten age, I’d also love to invite you to check out our South Sound preschool guide. I hope you’ll give special consideration to the schools with detailed listings who help support this site.
And, finally, if you’re considering private school options, I hope you’ll consider some of the great schools that sponsor Sounds Fun Mom, including Charles Wright Academy, Annie Wright Schools, Concordia Lutheran School, and Christian Faith School.
