Kindergarten Readiness Indicator Checklist

All six of our centers are proud to participate in DHS's Better Beginnings. One of the great resources they provide is a Kindergarten Readiness Indicator Checklist.


Arkansas's Definition of School Readiness: School ready children have the social and academic knowledge, skills and behaviors for school success and lifelong learning. School readiness occurs when families, schools and communities support and serve ALL children, so they are successful in school and in life.   This is a list of skills and knowledge that will help your child be ready for kindergarten. The checklist is NOT a test. It is a tool to help you see all of the things your child can do that will help him or her make the transition to kindergarten.
