How can I help my child get ready?

The Building Blocks For Kindergarten handbook outlines a number of ways you can help your child build skills needed for school. Families should begin preparing at least a year before kindergarten starts. This includes things like limiting your own screen time and incrementally adjusting your child's bedtime. Most importantly, a child should feel proud and confident on their first day of school. Your enthusiasm for learning and support leading up to that first day are critical.
