Hi Everyone

I know alot of children starting Kindergarten this year, with Brandon being one of them.

Everyone else has been talking about an assessment they have had for Kindergarten last week but Brandon didn't have this.

Should every kindergarten child be having this assessment or is it dependent on each school? Or does it have something to do with public and private/Catholic as Brandon is attending a Catholic school but the other children I know are all attending a public school.

I am a tad confused.

I have found a few references to the Best Start Kindergarten Assessment but each reference is for public schools only.

I work in the public schools so I know that we do it. Sorry not sure about Catholic Schools. I am confident they would be doing some form of assessment it may be a school modified one even.

Is this the assessment at kindy before they head off to school?
Logan had that, they checked his eyesight, sounds, etc.

I don't know if they did anything upon entrance to kindy though, I don't think they did? Not that I can remember anyway!

Sorry, not much of a help sad.gif

Really not too sure, some of the kids went in for like an orientation day last week to do an assessment and then went back to school a few days after.

Alot of schools do the "best start" program now. I think they were going to bring it in that all school do it (not sure as I haven't been at school for a year now). They assess the kids at the beginning of the year and then again at the end to see the improvement.

This is public school I am not sure about catholic schools. Some schools also do it during class time so maybe he has been tested?
