Caring parents want to give their children the best start and there are many avenues for this. Indeed, the first couple of years are the most vital for young children as they learn how to learn and develop interpersonal skills. However, as a teacher there is little I can do until a child reaches school age and that is kindergarten. The resources I have supplied you with are designed to help kindergarten teachers and others find great resources to make school exciting and meaningful.

Before you start you search, I would like to tell you about the research I did and how it impacted my children. Over 20 years ago I discovered that sending a child to school as soon as they were old enough could be a significant problem if that child was the youngest, or among the youngest in the class. As such, I held my daughter back nearly one full year to make sure she was ready for school. The results were astonishing. As a more mature student she was more readily able to grasp the concepts provided, had better coordination, and was more socialized. The teachers quickly recognized her and, as is human nature, pushed her to become more self-reliant. This simple act was ultimately recognized when she took her PSAT examinations where she was selected a National Merit Award Scholar. She has now finished college, her Ivy League diploma in hand all based on a good start.

If your child is immature I recommend you consider the same approach. It may be more expensive to pay for another year of preschool, but the child’s future may be enhanced by your actions. Ask professionals before you make any decision.

Anyway, here are some sites that can be used by pre-schoolers and kindergarten students, parents, and teachers. To save space just click on
