As their child’s first and most important teacher, parents and caregivers are critical in the kindergarten readiness effort. For families who do not have not access to high-quality early learning programs and supports, libraries can help close the kindergarten readiness gap.
Children should not have to play “catch up” when they enter Kindergarten. All Aboard for Kindergarten will:
Develop a statewide ready for school program that libraries can incorporate into their early learning programs using input from early learning partners;
Focus on the 60% of children who are cared for by Family, Friends, & Neighbors (FFN);
The resources on this page, which include kindergarten readiness information, activities and research are designed for library staff to share with parents, caregivers and early learning providers. We hope they will inspire our community to ensure that all children are ready to succeed in school and in life.
