3 - 5 years

Kindergarten and Beyond

During these two years, your child will develop more skills in literacy and numeracy such as learning to read, write, simple arithmetic, and essential school readiness skills like learning to socialize. This is also the time when many children develop unique interests. A great way to let your child explore budding interests is by exploring a wide variety of themes.

Your child will likely learn to read at age 4 or 5. At 5, they should read words comfortably by sounding them out.

Your child may have already begun writing letters before 3. However, from 3 to 5, they will learn to write full sentences.

Most children will master addition and subtraction after 5, but you can start with simple arithmetic as early as age 4.

Your child will likely begin to make friends and engage in cooperative play at around age 4.
