"It is critically important that parents start preparing their children early for success in kindergarten, which creates a foundation for achievement in later grades and lifelong learning."
Xavier De La Torre, Ed.D Santa Clara County Superintendent of Schools
Starting Kindergarten is a new beginning for learning, developing friendships, confidence and independence. However, it is normal for both children and parents to feel anxious about being completely prepared to start Kindergarten as well. FIRST 5 Santa Clara County in collaboration with the Santa Clara County Partnership for School Readiness has developed this handbook to help parents and caregivers prepare children for a successful Kindergarten experience.
