Kindergarten Readiness Indicators: Checklist

By Editors, NCLD Staff

 

This is a short checklist that helps you keep track of skills that children have mastered as they move through the pre-kindergarten year. You can use one checklist for each child, and check off skills in the fall, winter and late spring. Some children will not possess all of the skills included here, but that will not prevent them from entering school. This is simply a list of skills that will give you, as an early educator, a place to begin in preparing children for entering kindergarten.

Encouraging Ideas

Make it easier to practice skills at home: send a skill-building activity home each week. When possible, send it in the family’s native language(s) to encourage all family members to join in the fun.
