Kindergarten Resources for Providers

Preparing for Kindergarten

  • If you have been working on the School Readiness Checklist with your students, complete them before summer dismissal. 

  • Providers or parents can give the School Readiness Checklist to their new KG teacher in August

  • Provide parents the “10 Things Your Child Needs to Know Before Kindergarten” brochure to accompany the School Readiness Checklist. This brochure provides examples of how parents can work on the skills in the (above) checklist at home with their child.
