Know your child’s progress before kindergarten

As parents and caregivers, we worry if our children are ready for kindergarten. Elkhart Public Library wants to help you answer that question early.

Reading skills are assessed when children enter kindergarten. If you want to find out what is expected, sign up for our kindergarten assessment any time in the year before they go off to school.

Our 20-minute, one-time assessment session will give you an idea about your child’s readiness for kindergarten. Parents will receive personalized advice on how to prepare their child. If a boost is needed, Growing Readers will be there to help.

Our Growing Readers staff – each one a certified teacher with classroom experience – will administer the nationally standardized reading readiness assessment. They also will use local kindergarten readiness checklists. We give tips and answer questions, ensuring your child’s smooth transition into kindergarten.

Sign up today and we will contact you to arrange a time that works in your schedule.
