Kindergarten is the start of grade school for a five and six-year-old. Children are officially kindergartners when they get the chance to ride the big yellow school bus, eat in a large cafeteria, learn basic academics and enjoy different specials like PE, Media center, and music.

Self-regulation is apparent in different domains such as emotional, behavioural, and cognitive and are interrelated (Jahromi & Stifter, 2008, p. 125).
