Ready to Grow…Ready to Learn…Ready to Succeed In Kentucky, school readiness means that each child enters school ready to engage in and benefit from early learning experiences that best promote the child’s success. Families, early care and education providers, school staff, and community partners must work together to provide environments and developmental experiences that promote growth and learning to ensure that all children in Kentucky enter school eager and excited to learn. The five developmental areas for school readiness are: • Approaches to learning; • Health and physical well being; • Language and communication development;

• Social and emotional development; and • Cognitive and general knowledge

The purpose of this definition is to give parents, child care and preschool providers, and communities an overview of the expectations of primary schools for incoming students and provide guidance to families and communities on how to prepare children for school. In addition, a readiness profile provides teachers, child care providers, and parents a tool to better inform them on the specific strengths and needs of each individual child. These indicators represent the hopes and aspirations for incoming students, not the expectations. Children develop at different rates, not every child will have mastered all of the skills and behaviors listed below at the beginning of a primary program. Health and Physical Well-Being My child: • Eats a balanced diet • Gets plenty of rest • Receives regular medical and dental care • Has had all necessary immunizations • Can run, jump, climb, and does other activities that help develop large muscles and provide exercise • Uses pencils, crayons, scissors, and paints and does other activities that help develop small muscles Emotional and Social Preparation My child: • Follows simple rules and routines • Is able to express his or her own needs and wants • Is curious and motivated to learn • Is learning to explore and try new things • Has many opportunities to be with other children and is learning to play and share with others • Is able to be away from parents/family without being upset • Is able to work well alone • Has the ability to focus and listen
