School Readiness - Getting Kids and Families Ready for School
School readiness describes the level at which children possess the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for success in school and life. Head Start/Early Head Start recognizes that a child's family, school, and community interact and influence his or her development. Head Start children have enhanced physical health, improved social skills, and increased math, language, and literacy skills that better prepare them for kindergarten and school. They have better pre-reading, pre-writing and vocabulary skills. Head Start children perform better in cognitive-and language development and are able to pay better attention in school. See the chart below for the children's progress during the 2019-2020 school year while enrolled in the CPEC HS/EHS Program.
