Ability to Concentrate
Don’t worry — your child doesn’t need to sit still for an hour in order to be ready for preschool. For a three-year-old entering preschool, concentration is still a skill that they are working on and one that will be developed during their time in the classroom. Prior to starting school, they should be able to sit for the duration of a picture book or focus on a minor task for about 10 to 15 minutes.
A child who is ready for preschool is going to start showing more signs of independence. For some, the first sign of independence is that they are willing to play without adult interaction or redirection for 10 or 15 minutes. For others, the initial sign of independence is choosing the food that they want to eat at a meal or feeding themselves.
Fully Potty Trained
At our Livonia preschool, children must be fully potty trained before enrolling. This means that your child knows when they need to go to the bathroom, and can go to the bathroom independently.
If you feel that your child is showing these signs and more, then now is the perfect time to sign them up for three-year preschool in Livonia. Children who will be 3 years old on or before September 1 are able to enroll at Mother Hubbard Nursery School. Contact us to learn more about our engaging Livonia preschool.
