Five Signs That Your

Child Is Ready For School

Are you getting ready to send your little one off to school for the first time? You might be nervous (and excited!) about this transition in their lives. Have no fear; there are some signs that can help you know when your child is really ready for school.

A child can be emotionally, physically, and cognitively ready for school. Here are five tell-tale signs to help you determine if your kid is up to the task:  

1) They know their colors and shapes – At least close enough to pass a test

2) They can count from 1-20

3) They have good handwriting

4) They can write their first name

5) They interact well with other kids at daycare or preschool. If they seem like they’d be okay in an academic setting then there’s no reason why they shouldn’t start!
