Let’s Get Ready! Guide for Families with Rising Kindergarteners

The NC Department of Public Instruction’s Office of Early Learning (OEL) released a new resource for families and caregivers to help support their child’s transition to kindergarten.

The Let’s Get Ready! Guide:

  • Uses a whole child approach, building upon the five developmental domains from NC Foundations for Early Learning and Development.
  • Provides family-friendly guidance on age-appropriate developmental skills, support tips, and at-home activities focusing on adult/child interactions.
  • Includes a Transition Timeline with general guidance on the steps families need to take for their children in the year prior to kindergarten.

Share the Guide with anyone connected to four and five-year old children in your community including parents and family members, child care centers, preschools, schools, doctor’s offices, faith-based organizations, and libraries.

Learn more on NC OEL’s website which includes a video introduction to the Guide, information on kindergarten registration, and other helpful resources.
