What is School Readiness?

What is School Readiness?

With September being “Back to School” month, we thought it would be a great time to revisit some of the resources on our website about school readiness. You can find Minnesota’s Kindergarten Entry Developmental Checklist here. It covers the following developmental areas:

  • Personal and Social Development
  • Language and Literacy
  • Mathematical Thinking
  • The Arts
  • Physical Development and Health

Also on our website under Parent Resources, you can find an excerpt from “Some Misunderstandings of School Readiness” by David Elkind, which discusses the skills that truly prepare children for school.  At Especially for Children, we are committed to a play-based learning curriculum that supports and challenges children’s development and sets them up for success in learning and life!
