Results based on performance in literacy, numbers and scientific thinking in statewide assessments among children enrolled in Florida's Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program.
It matters—Kindergarten readiness influences your child’s future.
From the Mayo Clinic:
“Kindergarten marks the start of a child's formal education. A child's first school experiences can influence the way he or she relates to others for the rest of life. For example, success or failure at this stage can affect a child's well-being, self-esteem and motivation. As a result, it's important to make sure that when your child begins school he or she is developmentally ready to learn and participate in classroom activities.”
