As the parent of two elementary school children, I can still remember wanting to do whatever I could as a parent to prepare my children for school before they entered. In fact, I was looking for creative and fun ideas for activities and experiences for them as soon as I brought them home from the hospital. Okay, that is an overstatement because all I wanted for my newborn babies (and myself) was sleep.
Anyway, the more we can do to give our young children readiness skills for school, the better prepared they are to take advantage of the opportunities that school will provide. The website Zero-to-Three has recently released a fabulous interactive learning tool designed to help parents and caregivers encourage their young children’s early learning.
This Tool Includes:
Core information about how children develop school readiness skills and how parents and care givers can nuture and support these skills in young children.
Video clips that show children learning these skills through everyday interactions with their parents.
Parent-child activities which provide fun ideas for helping children develop school readiness skills.
Frequently asked questions that offer answers to common questions about learning.
If you have a newborn through preschooler check out School Readiness Interactive brought to you by ZERO TO THREE.
