What does it mean to be ready for school?
A child’s readiness for kindergarten includes both academic and social-emotional skills developed at home, school, and in their community.
The Virginia Kindergarten Readiness Program (VKRP) gives schools, teachers and families a complete picture of school readiness in 4 key areas: Mathematics, Literacy, Self-Regulation, and Social Skills.
VKRP provides actionable data that educators can use to support Virginia’s children statewide.
44% of Virginia children start kindergarten unprepared in at least 1 of these 4 key areas.
