Our early childhood education staff are committed to preparing all children for success as they enter kindergarten.
Kindergarten Readiness is based on the support children must have in place to foster the development of their own unique characteristics, knowledge and skills that equip them for optimal school success.
This includes the essential ingredients of physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development. Children need every one of these essential elements to help them prepare for a successful and seamless transition from the early learning years to kindergarten and beyond.
We recognize children's success in school is based on a multitude of factors. Kindergarten (school) readiness refers to not only ready children, but ready communities, families, and schools and early care and education programs. The essential elements to children's success in school are:
Ready schools and early care and education programs - provide services to enhance the health, safety, economic stability, development and learning of all children and their families.
Ready families - who know how to support their own children's learning and have access to adequate resources.
Ready children - who bring their own unique characteristics, skills, experiences, and are filled with curiousity and an eagerness to learn.
Ready communities - provide services to enhance the health, safety, economic stability, development and learning of all children and their families.
