Title: Parent Involvement and Kindergarten Readiness: An Approach for Success
Lead Author: Russell, Elizabeth M
Abstract: Each year in the United States, thousands of five-year-old children arrive at kindergarten unprepared to achieve the educational goals established by their state boards of education. The calculated costs of school unreadiness to society are staggering. However, comprehensive early childhood and family involvement programs can save society billions as well as provide children with a secure future. Because families serve as childrens first and most influential teachers, family members can take the lead in providing children with the experiences they need to succeed in school. We are proposing to address the problem of kindergarten unreadiness with a multifaceted family involvement model. This model would include direct services to children, family involvement in education, and teacher participation in family involvement. Research, however, is required to determine the characteristics of successful pre-kindergarten and family involvement programs, family recruitment and retention strategies, and teacher education and preparation as they apply to kindergarten readiness.
