what is kindergarten readiness?

Kindergarten Readiness is when a child shows up to kindergarten ready to learn.

Simple, right? Wrong.

Kindergarten Readiness is when a child shows up to kindergarten ready to learn.

Simple, right? Wrong.

A child showing up ready to learn doesn’t just mean they know their abcs and can count to 10. It means they can learn in the classroom environment. Why is this important?

Kindergarten isn't a cake walk anymore -
both academically
and socially + emotionally

Kindergarteners learn to read, write, add, subtract, compare, contrast, connect, -- AND communicate, sit still, hold a thought, navigate big emotional feelings, ask for help, do things on their own, eat snack at snack and lunch at lunch, listen, share, create, and keep going when they're tired.

It's a magical year, and at the same time it's a lot for kindergarteners...
but the trickiest part?

Knowing how to prepare your child for it.
Because it's NOT all the academic prep that helps...  it's you:

It's the way you talk to your child, the words you choose. it's the conflict resolution that you model. it's their daily routines. it's their thought process around learning and school. it's their feelings toward doing challenging things. It's the accountability you hold them to. it's how you model big feelings.



YOU, MAMAS AND DADS --
YOU ARE A HUGE PART OF THEIR KINDERGARTEN READINESS.

Kinder with Mackenzie Method

The Kinder with Mackenzie Method, which is the foundation for the Kinder Ready Program, teaches parents how to build each of these five categories that are essential for kindergarten readiness. 

Together, we will strengthen your child's resilience, independence, emotional regulation & independence, self awareness, and academic foundations. Their kindergarten readiness is built upon the loving, stable home you already provide your child. 

When these five areas ares are strong, your child:
  • arrives ready to learn
  • is set up to thrive in the classroom (and at home!)
  • has the independence to learn in a chaotic kindergarten classroom
  • any learning barriers or disabilities are able to show more clearly, allowing you to support it as soon as the time is right.
  • has the skills to work through the challenges of learning the academics of kindergarten: read, write, add subtract
  • has the skills to thrive socially: communicate ideas, boundaries, and work through conflicts with peers

unexpected classmates

isn't this what preschool is for?

Sadly, preschool isn't enough anymore. Yes, preschool exposes your child to playing with other kids, learning through play, alphabet letter names (maybe sounds) and counting, but what you do at home is still essential to your child's success. A few reasons why:

More and more kids are coming to kindergarten with undiagnosed learning (or other) disabilities/challenges that present themselves in extremely disruptive ways. Because kindergarten is the first year of public school, often teachers can't get the much needed support for these children until the end of the school year. This means that for the majority of the school year, there's a good chance your child has a classmate who exhibits disruptive behaviors.

how krp helps

Together, I help you teach your child how to focus on the task at hand, how to be a "self starter" and get started on their work on their own, use appropriate and effective words to communicate boundaries with peers, be able to continue their own learning once they complete the expected activity so there's minimal "wasted" time. Your child will learn how to be self sufficient and look to the teacher for teaching, not for every little thing. Teaching these skills isn't part of a kindergarten curriculum, yet it's a huge necessity and many teachers struggle to be able to include it. This is why it's vital to send your child to school with these skills.
1 in 4 children, statistically speaking, have a learning disability. You do the math, that means that there's a chance your child will experience a learning disability. However, learning disabilities aren't as scary as they once were. For one, they're increasingly common so there's more information and support, and second, many are minor if they're caught early. 

learning disabilities

When your child shows up fully ready to learn and thrive in a kindergarten classroom, it makes it much easier for a learning disability to show itself. If your child is fully focused during reading lessons, happy to learn, is doing what's expected and they are struggling to grasp the concepts it allows their challenges to show much sooner and therefore receive support early on. The alternate is that if they have built up resistance to reading, are distracted by their classmates and aren't completing their work, there are more things to rule out before getting to a learning disability.

about the founder

Mackenzie is a teacher through and through. She has a knack for understanding kids, their behaviors, their choices and knowing which subtle tweaks will make a big difference. Since she can remember, she’s been focused on being the best educator possible, starting with volunteering in classrooms and later turning into earning well over the required hours to become a teacher. She double majored in college – (1) Human Development and Family Sciences (focus on early child development) and (2) Elementary Education. In her first year of teaching, she began her master’s program in Curriculum and Instruction, with a focus on reading. 

Each year as a teacher, she enjoyed working with the kids and loved helping them. She got to help parents along the way but it wasn’t enough, which is why she’s taken her teaching experience, degrees, and passion and turned it into a highly valuable resource for parents. 

Mackenzie is on a mission to help parents understand kindergarten readiness and get equipped for a strong K year. Because kindergarten is just the beginning.
