When children apply to school for kindergarten, the schools like to know that the applicants for kindergarten know about the world around them: their address, their parent's names, their parent's occupations, how many people live in their house and so on. The other day I did an assessment and this adorable young man told me his Dad was named, "Babe". Well, it turns out he has a "real" name and outside of the home, he does not go by "Babe".
Why is this important? It gives a school an idea of whether your child is ready for kindergarten and knows where he/she fits in the world.
Social emotional intelligence is important!!!
No matter if your child is 4 or 14, emotional intelligence matters. Are you looking for a school that values that part of development? You should be!!!
