More and more families have been asking me about useful toys and activities to prep their children for private school kindergarten interviews.  Let me be clear: I am against kindergarten interview prepping.  Just by attending nursery school, your child is getting excellent exposure to educational toys and activities similar to what he or she will see at private school kindergarten interviews.  That said, if you’re looking for fun, stimulating toys to round out your family’s collection, here are some suggestions that my clients’ kids have enjoyed:
