As a parent of a preschooler, you have so many questions about the next step in your child’s educational and developmental journey:
- How can I tell if my child is ready for pre-K or kindergarten?
- How do I choose the best fit for my child’s learning style and personality, when both are still emerging?
- What can I do to nurture his/her readiness to transition from preschool to school?
Join us on Wednesday, April 27, from 9:30-10:30 a.m., for coffee and conversation with early childhood development expert Carol Kinlan. Carol is a leading educational consultant with McMillan, Howland & Spence of Boston, and specializes in helping parents of children ages two through six navigate their child’s early educational path.
You Will Learn:
- The five signs your child is ready to move from preschool to pre-K or kindergarten
- The keys to preparing your child for the next step in his/her educational journey
- How to choose the pre-K or kindergarten that is the best fit for your child and your family
Following the discussion, you will have the opportunity to tour Fessenden’s Pre-K/K center, talk to teachers, and see the students in action. We know how busy parents of young children are, so this part of the program is completely optional.
With key insights into how to determine your child’s readiness to move beyond preschool, how to make that transition seamless, and what to look for in your child’s next school, parents will leave with a solid plan on how to navigate the next steps on your child’s educational path.
Carol Kinlan is dynamic speaker who has extensive knowledge of our local public and private school systems and has been helping parents make the best educational choices for their children for over 25 years. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear her practical and actionable advice. Reserve your seat today!
