What is Kindergarten all about? How has it changed since you were in school? Does your child have a fall or late summer birthday? Is she more interested in free play than teacher directed activity? Does he have a hard time handling his emotions? Are you wondering if your child will be ready to enter Kindergarten in the fall?
Then this workshop is for you! Come learn about what Kindergarten teachers really expect from children and how to assess if your child will be ready to go or if he might do better with the "Gift of Time". This workshop is geared toward parents with children who will be entering Kindergarten in fall of 2009 but parents with younger children are invited to attend.
The facilitator is Stephanie Barry Agnew, BA. Stephanie is the Coordinator of Parent Education at the new San Mateo Parents Place Office. She has extensive background in Early Childhood education with 20 years of teachingexperience in Palo Alto area schools.
