School Readiness is one of the three pillars of the Tahoe Truckee Reads (and National Grade Level Reading) campaign.
Research shows that learning begins long before a child enters kindergarten. Children, even infants soak up words, rhymes, songs, and images. Vocabulary development is particularly important.
Just as there is an achievement gap in school performance, there is a school readiness gap that separates disadvantaged children from their more affluent peers. As early as 18 months, low-income children begin to fall behind in vocabulary development and other skills critical for school success.
Parents play an enormous role in closing this gap, as do daycare providers, pediatricians, preschools programs, and the broader community. Below is a video released by the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading highlighting the importance of school readiness.
