The early entrance process involves an objective evaluation of your child’s cognitive, fine motor skills, visual-motor integration, communication, and social/emotional development. To increase the likelihood that your child will be successful in their first year of school, they will be expected to meet standards approximately six months above their chronological age in all areas assessed.
