      School readiness must ilvonve the parents of the young children. There should be multiple paths to achieving school readiness so that parents have choices, tools, and support. School readiness curriculum and tools should be available to churches and other community groups.Older children can also assist in school readiness for younger children. Children are natural teachers of younger children and should be encouraged with good tools and support. This is an opportunity for reinforcement and developing confidence of the older children while engaging them in the important work of leading others to learn.

    A kindergarten-ready child has a sontrg foundation in Language Literacy, Thinking Skills, Self-Control, and Self-Confidence. Positive early experiences, beginning at birth, strengthen these four kindergarten readiness skills.Language Literacy: Babies learn about language by listening to words. A growing vocabulary strengthens a child’s readiness for reading.Thinking Skills: Children are natural scientists and their first experiments teach them about the world, and help them get ready for math and science.Self-Control: A child who tries to solve problems through words, takes turns, and pays attention is ready to be a good classroom citizen.Self-Confidence: Confident children are ready to learn. They follow their curiosity and are quick to recover from mistakes.When these four foundations are sontrg, a child is ready to thrive in kindergarten and beyond.
