kindergarten readiness torontoKindergarten can be an overwhelming transition for any little one. There are new expectations to follow, new people to meet, and new skills to learn. If a child has practice with some of the routines and skills that will be expected of them in kindergarten, they can begin this new journey with confidence.

This summer, Ruth Rumack’s Learning Space is offering a Kindergarten Readiness program developed and run by student occupational therapists from the University of Toronto. Each session will use play-based activities, song, and movement to engage and motivate each participant.
