Sometimes, someone will call me and say something along the lines of,  “Junior rocks mazes!  I got him a maze workbook and he gets it!  He’s set for the ERB!”

However, sadly for these individuals, mazes aren’t on the ERB for kindergarten.  Mazes used to be, but no longer.  They’ve been off the ERB for a number of years.

Hmm, you think.  That’s weird.  The ERB supposedly quantifies a child’s intelligence and suitability for private school.  Mazes used to be thought to indicate intelligence, and now they don’t?

I agree.  It IS weird.  But that’s ERB rationale for you.

If your child likes mazes, for fun (and maybe development of fine motor skills), try:  Kumon My Book of Easy Mazes.

With my program, Preschoolers’ Prep, I teach you what skills and capabilities admissions directors do seek from applicants, and recommend a personalized ERB Kit with educational toys and workbooks.  I am very proud of the scores my clients’ children have achieved with my program, and the fact that kids have had fun while learning.  To learn more or call 212-712-2228 9am-9pm EST.
