Kindergarten marks a momentous transformation for both child and family. Along with this change comes many worries and anxieties. Parents often wonder if their child is developmentally ready to attend kindergarten. They also want to know what they can do to help their child transition easily into kindergarten. Being certain the child is ready for kindergarten can make this move to a formal school setting a much more pleasant and successful experience. This project was created to prepare parents by providing them with information surrounding kindergarten readiness and was developed using the content analysis of various other parent handbooks, as well as current research on selected topics. In addition to information regarding the importance of kindergarten readiness, the concepts of kindergarten curricula, developmental milestones of a kindergarten-aged child, and the significance of building family-school partnerships are included. The handbook also recommends many strategies for parents to support their child's learning before kindergarten begins. --Leaf ii.
