Schools will not admit students
SCHOOLS WILL NOT ADMIT STUDENTS

WHO ARE NOTPREPARED


In today’s modern world, a child must attend preschool in order to prepare for kindergarten at either a public or private school.


The administrators of schools require that students pass an admission test before they can enroll in kindergarten.


Failure to pass this test leads to a student attending a remedial program before progressing to a kindergarten curriculum.


Most parents do not have the materials to teach their child all of the information and skills required to pass a kindergarten admission test.


Teachers also want their students to have certain social skills in order to fit into a classroom environment.



Preschool age children typically do not have a structured environment at home with a daily schedule of learning.


In a preschool, the teachers create a schedule of activities to help students develop a variety of skills.


Instead of getting to do whatever they want at any time of the day, a preschooler must adjust to following a teacher’s guidelines.


In most cases, the lessons taught in a preschool last for a maximum of 20 minutes because the students have short attention spans.


However, the lessons are designed cohesively to permit children to learn about different subjects.
