| || |We're moving to Canton Aargau next May. My son starts his final year of Kindergarten this year and will start 1st year in 2013 in Switzerland. I wanted to supply his teacher this year with a list of Aargau requirements for next year to make his transition as easy as possible. Everything I'm finding in English for the canton is pretty vague. I'm used to seeing something like this: http://plattecounty.mo.schoolwebpage...etailid=15687& (If you click on the links, it gives a specific list of skills). I'm concerned about him starting in a new language and want to make sure he's learned everything expected (and maybe even more if possible without stressing him out!).

We stay in Aargau and my son has just started kindergarden. I dont think there are any specific skills required for a 1st grader. In fact, from the little i have seen, i think the acquisition of new academic skills start only in the first grade, so you have nothing to worry. Since everything will be new to other children as well, i dont think even language will be an issue. If it becomes an issue, i have heard that there will be separate language classes for your child.
If you have any specific questions i can always pop into the Gemeinde office and check with the school secretary or ask my son's kindergarden teacher. Please feel free to PM me or reply to this post with specific questions if you have any.
all the best for the move!
