How Can You Avoid Making These Three Common K-Readiness Mistakes?

Kristie Pretti-Frontczak

In our race to readiness, our hearts break as we watch so many children being left behind. We lament that PLAY is no longer how children spend their time; and the question, “How can I hold 30 hands, when I only have two?” keeps us up at night. You are not alone in these struggles. Many of us are seeking a paradigm shift…a shift from compliance to compassion, from standardization to personalization, and from segregation to integration, particularly when it comes to common mistakes being made around K-readiness policies and practices. This program explores three readiness remedies that can get teams back on track…back to doing what they do best; ensuring supportive relationships with children and families, cultivating children’s love of learning, and inspiring communities of hope.
