Demystifying Preschool and Kindergarten Educational Milestones


Health professionals talk a lot about developmental milestones, but what about educational milestones? Learn what skills are most helpful to have by the time your child enters preschool and kindergarten, and how to cultivate them. By the end of this workshop, you’ll know more about how to:


  • Prepare for, and cope with the stress of the first few transition weeks

  • Foster foundational skills that will help your child join circle time, participate in class activities, play well with others, follow directions, advocate for themselves, and ask for help

  • Cultivate social and emotional skills like dealing with hard internal feelings, and engaging with peers and teachers in a kind and appropriate way



  • Wendy Xa is the Founding Head of School for the Terra Schools, a nature-based, multilingual Mandarin, Spanish, and English educational program for preschoolers through 8th graders. Previously, Wendy founded Presidio Knolls School, a Mandarin Immersion school based in the SoMa district of San Francisco. Wendy brings a fresh perspective as someone who studied neuroscience and founded 2 schools for her 2 daughters. 

  • Shauna Sullivan is the Assistant Head of School at the Terra Schools. She has over 20 years of teaching experience and holds an M.A. and B.A. in Education with a focus in mathematics from SFSU. Shauna has taught every grade from kindergarten through 8th grade.
