¡Preparémonos!Una guía familiar para apoyar la preparación para Kinder.
La primera experiencia escolar de un niño es una ocasión monumental tanto para la familia como para el niño. Uno puede preguntarse: “¿Está mi hijo listo para la escuela?” y, “¿Está la escuela lista para mi hijo?” Si bien no existe una fórmula única para garantizar la “preparación” escolar, existen muchas oportunidades para que las familias y los cuidadores promuevan y apoyen el desarrollo y el aprendizaje de un niño antes de ingresar al jardín de infantes.

La Instantánea del Estudiant

MIC3 Guide for Parents, School Officials and Public Administrators
Military families move between postings on a regular basis, and while reassignments can often be a boon for career personnel, they can be difficult for the children of military families. The average military student faces transition challenges more than twice during high school and most military children will attend six to nine different schools in their lives from Kindergarten to 12th grade. The Compact seeks to make transition easier for the children of military families, so they are afforded the same opportunities for educational success as other children, and are not penalized or delayed in achieving their educational goals.
