Preparing for Kindergarten

"IKindergarten First Dayn Kentucky, 'School Readiness' means ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​that a child enters school ready to engage in and benefit from early learning experiences that best promote the child’s success. The journey to kindergarten begins at birth. In the first five years of life, 90% of the brain is developed. This critical window lays the foundation for a child's developmental and emotional health that leads to school success. The school readiness definition outlines the five developmental domains children can aspire to have prior to kindergarten. While these skills are desired, the only eligibility requirement for kindergarten enrollment in Kentucky is to meet the legal age requirement to enter public school." - taken from
