Kindergarten Readiness Forum

The Kindergarten Readiness Forum is designed to demystify the kindergarten enrollment process and reduce stress for families going through the application process. A panel of experienced local professionals will discuss the best ways to prepare oneself and one’s child for a successful transition into kindergarten. Topics include:

  • social adjustment to a new school and classmates;
  • what a child is expected to know when entering kindergarten;
  • how to ensure one’s child receives all the services he or she needs; and
  • the testing and acceptance process.

Panelists will be available to answer questions after the program.
