School Readiness

Wilkes Community Partnersip For Children

 School readiness is defined by the condition of children as they enter school. Five domains are taken into consideration when evaluating a child’s readiness for school:

 * Health and Physical Development
 * Social and Emotional Development
 * Approaches Toward Learning
 * Language Development and Communication
 * Cognition and General Knowledge

It’s important for children to be healthy physically and emotionally, and able to interact with adults and children socially.

School readiness is arriving at school with the knowledge, skills, and physical and emotional health needed to participate successfully. It includes children having basic human needs like food, shelter, and loving and nurturing relationships readily met, so that children can focus on learning while at school.

The North Carolina Partnership for Children, Inc. & Smart Start have partnered to ensure that children who are in child care across the state have access to the tools needed to make them successfully school ready.
