According to SPS, the pre-school skills that are helpful for kindergarten include, personal social skills, language & literacy skills, numeracy skills, physical & motor skills and creative skills.
SPS encourages you to begin preparing your child for kindergarten by engaging your child in conversation, encouraging your child to express his/her needs in full sentences, exposing your child to social situations with other children, working on self-help skills and reading with your child everyday.
