View Full Version : All SF Best time to schedule kindergarten screening?

Wondering if anyone has advice on how to stack/schedule kindergarten screening visits?

Did your child do better at the screenings that were scheduled first? Or, do you think your child was more at ease with the process toward the end of the month because the knew what to expect? Wondering how to stack my favorite schools (first or last).

I am probably over thinking it but if anyone has anecdotal advice, I'll take it.

Do you mean the playdates since a bunch of the privates share the screening? Either way, I would say schedule the playdate for your favorite schools after the first one. That way, your child will at least have an idea what to expect. I wouldn't necessarily schedule for the very end since your child may be burned out by then. Try to put some gap in between the different playdates to give him/her a little break to recover. Also, be sure not to put pressue on them for these events - they can sense your anxiety.
