Understand How Early Childhood Development in 8 Specific Areas Is Critical to School Success
As an experienced preschool and kindergarten teacher, I identified eight key developmental areas that play a critical role in a child’s success in preschool, kindergarten, and beyond.
Understanding more about each of these 8 key developmental areas will help you assess your child’s readiness to begin school and foster his growth in each area. For each of the 8 key developmental areas, I provide:
- An explanation of the developmental area, including a discussion of how and why that area is critical to success to in school.
- Tips for accelerating your child’s development in that area. This includes time-tested strategies, activity suggestions, and advice for correcting common problems.
- A summary of what will be expected of your child during preschool and kindergarten.
