Readiness Matters 2018

We know from decades of research that kindergarten readiness is critical to a child’s lifelong success. It means children are ready for school, and families and communities are ready to support their children’s learning. Children entering school not demonstrating the social-emotional, cognitive, and physical well-being and motor development skills needed for success will continue to struggle academically throughout their school years. Many of our youngest children live in communities with significant barriers that can prevent them from reaching their full potential.  

LEARN MORE

The Readiness Matters, Equity Matters series shares the 2017-2018 Kindergarten Readiness Assessment (KRA) data of Maryland's children: statewide, by subgroups and for each of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions. Customized PowerPoint presentations, parent resources, and information for Maryland EXCELS programs are also available.

TAKE ACTION

Everyone must take proactive measures to improve kindergarten readiness. Kindergarten teachers and school administrators should begin addressing the gaps in readiness that some children already demonstrate.
