Prepare Your Child for School 

  1. Read with your children. Many library programs offer reading challenges for pre-kindergarten-age kids.
  2. Practice getting ready and self-care. Teach your child the importance of daily hygiene, appropriate sleep, and a healthy diet.
  3. Play games together and limit screen time. When you play games with your kids, they are learning skills and strategies.
  4. Practice coping techniques for tough situations. Learning to share, wait their turn, and handle disappointment are all important skills!
  5. Enroll your child in SCCAA Head Start! Head Start is the most successful, longest-running, national school readiness program in the United States.
