With all the emphasis lately on standardized testing, to the point where even Universal Pre-Kindergarten is being described as academic and focused on skills-building, it's important to remember that some of the most important things your child needs to know for Kindergarten have nothing to do with the three R's.

For instance, my oldest could read chapter books in Kindergarten, but his teacher clued me in about a much more important skill he was missing.

Read all about it (and the mistakes I made with my next two kids, too!) in my latest post for Mommy Poppins at: http://mommypoppins.com/kids/entering-nyc-kindergarten-5-things-to-know

And if the first day of Kindergarten is currently worrying you less than just the thought of applying your child to one for 2016, make sure you send a question to my podcast, here, or sign up for one of my FREE upcoming workshops:

Sign up for September 24 (East Side), here.

And if you can't wait for either, check out my book, Getting Into NYC Kindergarten, for inside tips on the entire process, and a timeline that starts NOW!

Yeah I agree that finding a best kindergarten for baby is an important factor to build his carrier. Well, I am finding Phoenix kindergarten which is popular and provides best facilities. Can you suggest any?
