What is School Readiness
 School readiness is a set of skills, knowledge, mindsets, behaviors, and attitudes necessary for success in school and in life. It includes aspects of six domains:

 

1. Physical Well-Being and Development

 

This domain includes health status, growth, and disabilities; physical abilities, such as gross and fine motor skills; and conditions before, at, and after birth.

 

2. Social and Emotional Development

 

This domain combines two interrelated components affecting children's behavioral health and learning. Social development

 refers to children's ability to interact with others and their capacity for self-regulation.  Emotional development includes children's perceptions of themselves, their abilities to understand the feelings of other people, and their ability to interpret and express their own feelings.

 

 

 

3. Approaches to Learning

 

This domain refers to children's inclination to use skills and knowledge.  Key components include enthusiasm, curiosity,

and persistence on tasks. These components are outcomes of a growth mindset.

 

 

4. Language and Literacy Development

 

This domain includes communication and emergent literacy.  Communication includes listening, speaking, and vocabulary.

Emergent literacy includes print motivation and awareness, early

writing, phonological awareness (the connection between letters

and sounds), and phonemic awareness (the ability to hear, identify,

and manipulate individual sounds).

 

 

 

5. Cognition and General Knowledge

 

This domain refers to thinking and problem solving as well as knowledge about particular objects and the way the world works.  Mathematical knowledge, abstract thought, and

imagination are included.

 

6. Cultural Awareness

 

This domain refers to the ability to examine and understand the values, beliefs, traditions and perceptions within an individual's own culture and other cultures.
