School Readiness


What does school readiness look like?

School readiness requires preparation and strong relationships for children, families, schools and communities.

  • Children are prepared in key dimensions of early learning and development. 

  • Families understand their children’s current level of development and know how to encourage them. They are supportive partners with the school and understand the school system their child will enter.

  • Schools provide a welcoming and accepting environment for all children and have professional educators who consistently advance student growth and achievement while working in partnership with families.

  • Communities support schools and families and value their critical role in early learning.
