Today's parents are concerned about their child's education and school success more than ever before, and Ready for Preschool gives these parents the support and strategies they need to ensure their child gets the right head start on academic achievement. With high demands being placed on kindergarten children to learn skills such as reading, writing, problem solving, and test taking, the academic expectations of preschool children naturally are increasing as well. This must-read for parents of young children will help them implement activities to stimulate learning in preparation for entering preschool. Other topics of interest include the difficult decision of selecting the best school match for your child, preparing for the transition between day care and school and preschool and kindergarten, and working with the school system. The author, a nationally recognized early childhood researcher and preschool director, also provides tips for preparing children emotionally and socially for school pressures and demands.
