About this Session

“Getting ready for kindergarten” isn’t just a few days or weeks at the end of the pre-K calendar with a couple of farewell activities: it is the process of weaving the knowledge and skills young children have developed through experiences and interactions into the learning readiness that they will bring with them to school.

School and district leaders know that those experiences and interactions children have before entering kindergarten can be quite varied, meaning that children arrive at elementary school with differing degrees of readiness. Attending a high-quality pre-K program during the year before kindergarten is key to helping children build the knowledge, skills, and abilities that will prepare them for success in elementary school and beyond.

Join us for this 1-hour webinar where we will discuss essential information for building a high-quality pre-K program and facilitating a successful transition to kindergarten, including

  • how pre-K differs from kindergarten,
  • what to look for in a robust pre-K curriculum,
  • effective professional development for pre-K and kindergarten teachers, and
  • ensuring kindergarten teachers and classrooms are ready for children.
