Here we have rounded up some important skills for your kindergarten kid.

  • Dining:

Many kids learn to feed themselves a meal at this stage. Therefore, you should teach them how to open a lunch box or a water bottle. Though a kid will be under the adult supervision, no one will likely to monitor if he can open each container or help him put them all neatly away. Therefore, you should teach them earlier how to dine in an organized way.

  • Dress Up:

Tell your kid how to manage his outfit easily to prevent bathroom troubles and embarrassment as well. Ask him if his belts and buttons are comfortable. An optimal dress ensemble for them can be elastic waist shorts, pullover shorts and shoes with strap. And teach them how to dress and take off clothes each day.

  • Name and Phone Number:

Make sure kids know their full name, phone number, and address. This gives you peace of mind that they would be able to find you if they were ever to be separated from you.

  • Personal Hygiene:

Needless to say, they should be toilet trained before the very first stage of their school life. Teach them how to wash hands and blow their own noses. Also, tell them where to dispose of dirty tissues.

So these are the skills you should teach your kids before admitting them to kindergarten. It will not only ensure convenience but also foster confidence in your kids as they learn to do handle the things themselves.
