Jumping into Kindergarten
Starting kindergarten represents a major milestone in the lives of young children (and their parents!). It is an important step into the unknown that while exciting can also be the cause of nervous anticipation for everyone involved. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be scary!

There is growing anxiety around how to define and instill a new and improved set of school-readiness skills that will best help them to succeed. Written with Julia Cook.
