What is School Readiness?
The office of Head Start defines school readiness as children possessing the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for success throughout their academic careers. As school readiness is all encompassing, we include family engagement and overall health and wellness in our school readiness reports.
The Education team studies child data 3-4 times a year. We use those results to write program action steps and plan training.
