Pre-kindergarten Skill Training

Kindergarten is a busy place today. Children are expected to know a great deal of information before entering. Many schools will tell you that there is no need for pre-preparation, but experience is telling parents that there is a great deal of preparation required.

We have developed an intake assessment of Kindergarten skills that, in part, the parents fill out while the rest of the assessment the child will be ask to demonstrate what he or she has been learning in three or four short years.

Much of our emphasis and critical assessment if in the areas of language. The earlier we can prompt parents as to how to enhance early language development the less problems are seen later, as the child enters school.

If we feel there is a developmental problem we will refer you back to your pediatrician or to a specialist. If during the assessment numerous gaps in learning are found we will suggest a program to fill in the gaps. “Gap Fill” will insure a child will feel successful right from the start of kindergarten.

Please call us to inquire about programs for children with special needs. We will also be happy to design an assessment that meets with your child's needs and design a special program to help your child meet with success.
