You may want to talk to the preschool director or a school administrator.
Phone number, address and counting to 100 are goals in our (very good for our state) Kindergarten class. It's good info to know, but I'd hate for you to stress and he has 2 more years to learn that.
Our preschoolers learn to recognise letters, colours, letter sounds, shapes. Umm... what they do on Sesame Street. They learn to paint, cut, paste. They start to learn to write their names, although there are many people who think they shouldn't so early. They learn how to sit in a circle and listen (not for long), how to leave their parents for a few hours, how to eat a healthy lunch, how to swing and play in the sand. They learn this all through play.
Mostly, they learn how to interact with friends. If your child can play with friends, knows at least some colors and letters, you're probably good! But ask for your county. Then you can pace the learning.
