Kindergarten Readiness 101

We all know that transitioning from preschool to kindergarten can be a challenge, for parents and children alike.  So join us for a conversation with our experienced preschool teachers and staff from local elementary school to talk about this important milestone.  We’ll learn strategies to support children during this change and talk about ways to make this transition smooth and successful.
