School Readiness



Children are born ready to learn. The experiences that children have in the early years are the foundation for growth and development, and what they learn through these experiences are shaped by a child’s family, community and schools.

The building blocks for success in learning occurs before kindergarten. Families, communities, and schools all play a part in a child’s school readiness by supporting the development of skills and positive behaviors, as well as enhancing the environments in which they spend their time.
