Is your child ready for kindergarten? Long ago, kindergarten was more of a socialization “grade” as it introduced many of us to our first hours away from parents and caregivers in preparation for school days. We learned a few of the basics by the end of the year—but, it certainly wasn’t as rigid as today. In fact, kindergarteners are expected to enter school with a good grasp of many basic skills so that they are ready to hit the ground running in today’s tougher kindergarten curriculum. Over the years, I have worked with a number of supplemental, educational programs for my children and I wanted to share the EmbarK¹² family of preschool programs, from K¹² , the leader in online education for grades K through 12. Whether you are supplementing your child’s current preschool program or working on your own, this program may work for you and your preschooler.
What is the EmbarK¹² family of preschool programs? This preschool program includes EmbarK¹² Comprehensive and EmbarK¹² Online—two options for dynamic, enriching, preschool educational supplements. The programs, developed by educators, seek to make kindergarten readiness fun for kids and parents!

The program helps prepare students in areas such as mathematical reasoning, investigative skills, scientific observation, and early literacy, through interactive lessons and games. The program incorporates music, videos, songs, and fun, engaging activities to keep those digital age kiddoes interested (and learning!)
