However, we’re confident that students using our program are able to smoothly transition to standard schooling, as long as they and their parents and teachers are equipped with the right tools.

What is school readiness?

School readiness includes many factors, such as your child’s readiness for school, the school’s readiness for children with diverse needs, and the availability of family and community support for optimal early child development. Essential aspects of school readiness include physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development.

How do I know if my child is school-ready?

Determining whether your child is school-ready involves both subjective and objective milestones. Every school has different criteria when it comes to kindergarten readiness. However, most schools in Arizona, have standard milestones for starting kindergarten, including:

  • Self-help skills, such as using the restroom independently.
  • Language and literacy skills, such as using sentences with at least 5-6 words.
  • Emotional and social skills, including understanding the importance of taking turns.
  • Motor development, such as holding a pencil and utensils.
  • Basic math skills, like identifying numbers and shapes.
What does a school readiness assessment involve?

The team at Scottsdale Children’s Institute offers a kindergarten readiness assessment free of charge to families looking for support. This assessment evaluates your child’s skills across different areas of their educational development. Then, they analyze the results in relation to the Comprehensive Preschool Inventory of Repertoires for Kindergarten Assessment (C-PIRK).
