Preparing Over the Summer for the Transition to School:

The transition to school can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time. What do you and your child need to feel ready to begin pre‐kindergarten or kindergarten this fall? Get prepared by attending this workshop that will introduce best practices for this period of child development. We will review how to prepare your child for the transition to school, how to foster independence, and how to keep a consistent structure in the home while setting limits, building confidence, and getting in enough quality time. We will also briefly review preacademic skills that show your child is ready for school, and show evidence on the importance of parent involvement in their child’s education.
Presenter: Kirsten Cullen Sharma, PsyD

The workshop is free and open to the public. Please register in advance.
