Since most children are going back to school over the next couple of weeks, I thought I'd post a link on preschool readiness. Preschool is important for many children, especially those with learning disorders or developmental disabilities. If they go to preschool, then they may perform better in kindergarten. ..they may even have fun in kindergarten!

I have a friend who used to be a kindergarten teacher. She once told me that the best thing a parent can do for any child to prepare them for kindergarten is to send them to preschool or another part-time program such as Mother's Day Out or daycare the year or two before starting kindergarten. It is hard to learn in kindergarten if the first part of the school year is full of separation anxiety... get that out of the way in preschool!
