Did you know that you are bringing up the most important children in the world? That means that you are doing the most important job in the world. Active Parenting offers you help in navigating the sometimes choppy waters of parenthood with confidence and ease.
The program will show you how to:
* Navigate effectively
* Teach responsibly
* Stop power struggles
* Handle problems
* Build courage and much more
The purpose of the kindergarten screening is not to test how much your child knows, so much as to see if your child is developmentally ready to start kindergarten and if a child will need any additional support in the classroom. Kindergarten screening is also a great way to familiarize your child with his/her new school. They generally last 20 to 30 minutes and the parent or guardian does not stay with the child.
Listed below are just some kindergarten readiness skills that will be tested during screening.
* Self-care skills
* Language skills
* Cognitive skills
* Gross Motor skills
* Fine Motor skills
Sr. Marie Laurence Primary School is offering Sessions on Active Parenting to parents and will be screening newly registered 3 and 4 year olds. This all happens in March and April 2017.
