More than one-third of America’s young children enter kindergarten lacking the skills crucial to school success.
This means that every year, over a million children enter kindergarten behind on Day 1 in literacy and numeracy development. Meanwhile, research shows that these early years of education can be directly linked to odds of long-term success.
Our early childhood assessments are specifically designed to help address this issue by giving preschool educators the decision-making tools they need in order to monitor growth throughout a child’s early years.
