A child’s first years in school can set the tone for the future school years. For this reason, it is important to make sure they are prepared socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically to enter kindergarten. The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) has partnered with the Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) in an effort to help both schools and families with the transition to kindergarten.
We are pleased and excited to announce the launch of a parent resource website for the GKIDS Readiness Check! The site will serve as a resource for parents to learn more about kindergarten readiness, the skills assessed on the GKIDS Readiness Check, and activities to help support their child’s development at home. The site includes Spanish translation and closed captioning.
