Getting Ready for Kindergarten

The Arkansas Department of Human Services has created a calendar to assist families preparing for Kindergarten. 


The Family Calendar runs from September through August. For each month there is a theme that focuses on specific kindergarten readiness indicators. Each month is divided into four weeks with suggested activities that you and your child can do together each week. Be flexible. If your child is not interested in a suggested activity, move on to something else. Allow your child to repeat activities. Children learn through repetition.
