Preparing My Child for School


Turning 5 isn’t the only indicator your child is ready for school. Children grow and develop in all different ways, and on their own timeline.


So if your child is school-age, consider these factors:

  • Is she small for her age?
  • Is he socially immature?
  • Is she curious about the world around her and eager to know more?
  • Is he eager to do things on his own to show his burgeoning independence?
