Kindergarten is an introduction to school.
When kindergarten students walk into a classroom, that room is often their first classroom. If they didn’t go to preschool, a kindergarten class is their first experience of school. It’s in these classrooms that students learn what school is like.

Kindergarten Kiddos learn social skills.
Learning social skills is crucial in a kiddo’s life. This is what helps them make friends, learn confidence and be an overall kind and caring human. Students learn social skills both in the classroom and on the playground. They learn how to express their feelings and how to talk to a friend. They also learn that they don’t get everything they want all the time. This is where learning how to share comes into play. Kindergarten students need to learn these skills to be successful, kind, communicating adults.

Kindergarten Kiddos learn the basics.
Kindergarten builds the foundation for other grades. Students learn many basics like letters, sounds, numbers, reading, writing, addition, subtraction, the list goes on and on. All of these skills are necessary for students to learn so they can be successful in first grade, second grade, on and on until the end of their schooling. Kindergarten teachers help build this strong foundation and trust me when I say, it’s no easy task!
