preschool readiness

Henry started preschool last Thursday.

A big day.
Though the day itself didn’t seem so big.
After a few weeks of going four mornings a week, it may start to feel different.
I have asked myself many times, “Is Henry ready for Preschool?”

“Is he doing all the things a preschooler should be doing?”
“What does he need to know?”
That’s exactly the kind of questions that Ann Gillinger and Paulette Collins of Chatsworth Hills Academy will be answering during a twitter party about the ABCs of preschool readiness.
You’re inviteD to a Party!
[HOSTED BY MYSELF ANd Chatsworth hills academy]

When: This Thursday, August 25, 7-9pm PST

What: Chatting and asking questions about preschool readiness, as many of our preschoolers are just about to have that very first day of school [ever!] or will be in the next couple of years. 

A few of the topics to be covered:

  • Social/Emotional Readiness – covering that first day of school!
  • Physical Readiness – gross motor skills along with potty training.
  • Language/Literacy Readiness – telling stories, 
  • Cognitive Readiness – Does he know everything he should know?
  • Curriculum Expectations – know what to expect that your child is doing!
Ask Questions: Please message @CHAChatsworth on Twitter or on their Facebook Page prior to the party of any specific questions you want to make sure are answered during the party. During the party, you can still ask your questions, just include @CHAChatsworth and #preschoolready in your tweet!

Where: Twitter! Use hashtag #preschoolready to follow and be part of the chat. Append all your tweets with #preschoolready to make sure your questions, answers and comments get heard. [Be sure to follow @CHAChatsworth and @handsonaswegrow].

I set up a custom tweet grid to follow #preschoolready (it also automatically appends your tweets with the hashtag). 

Who: You! And anyone interested in talking about preschool readiness [parents, teachers, caregivers, etc.].

Why: Choosing a school is a big choice for parents. Knowing how to prepare your child for preschool is probably even harder. Get the information you need to know directly from the sources: Ann Gillinger is the Head of School at Chatsworth Hills Academy and Paulette Collins is the Director of Early Childhood there as well.

Prizes: They’re also giving away prizes throughout the chat! With the grand prize being a $50 gift certificate to 

RSVP:  Join the party by using #preschoolready. No need to RSVP to it, but you can ‘attend’ the Facebook event so you get a reminder: Is Your Child #PreschoolReady?

Hope to see you there! 
Good times!
