what are PRE-ACADEMIC skills?
Children entering Kindergarten need to be able to follow directions, focus their physical and mental attention during classroom instruction time, and start to understand how to work with their peers. It's vital that incoming Kindergarten students have mastery of numbers, shapes, and the alphabet to help them learn how to read, write, and solve problems.
These skills set the foundation for children to reach their full potential in school and in life.
