Kindergarten Readiness

The Kindergarten Readiness Work Team will work collaboratively to ensure that all children who enter kindergarten are “kindergarten read,” based on their school district’s K-readiness assessment

Rationale

In St. Louis, Superintendents, educators and the research (First Step to Equity Report, Ready by 21 St. Louis, For the Sake of All, Ferguson’s Commission Report) point to the importance of students attending quality early childhood programs to be ready to learn when they enter kindergarten. Kindergarten teachers noted that students who attend a quality Pre-K program are much more successful learners in kindergarten. Families warmly discussed how quality early programs have benefited both their children and their family.

Strategy

Support agencies to improve quality and access to early childhood programs.
