Preparing Colorado's Children
CDE and School Readiness promote a start early approach to school. With a strong, early start Colorado children will be more likely to continually succeed in school. School Readiness supports teachers’ ability to create responsive learning environments that ensure academic and developmental growth for students. This includes promoting awareness of developmentally appropriate practices (DAP) that supports hands-on learning experiences and challenges students’ thinking.
To do this, school readiness assessments are used on an ongoing basis to measure children’s growth. Information collected through the assessments provides teachers with targeted instruction opportunities for individual students and small groups of students, thereby strengthening the learning environment for students.
