This School Readiness Plan and Goals were created by the Three Rivers Head Start to align with the information that was collected from all area school districts around their School Readiness goals that currently existed. The goals were also created from the categories of development as described by the National Office of Head Start. They were developed to align with the Minnesota Early childhood Indicators of Progress, and the Kindergarten Entry Development Checklist, as well as the National Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework.

Teaching Strategies GOLD Assessment areas of development and learning indicators were aligned to meet the Framework. School Readiness goals are the expectation for the children’s progress across the domains in the Framework. Our program will utilize the five domains, represented by the inner wheel of the Head Start Early Learning Framework as required for the agency preschool readiness goals.

All Head Start staff will support the program school readiness goals.
