Does your 4 year old know their phone# & address?

My DD turned 4 in Dec. and already knows these but it seems that other kids in her preschool don't. Do your kids know them?

  • It's great if they know them or even just one by then. I wouldn't worry for those that don't know them by then. Those are something that they need to know by the time they enter Kindergarten or that they learn at the very beginning of the Kindergarten year. :) Good work, Mommas. ;)

  • My son has known my phone # since he was 3. I have not taught him the address though, we had to move a lot (long story), so I never bothered. I guess I should prob get on that now that we are in an apartment where I sighned a year lease. :)
