The kids entering kindergarten in 2017 will be entering the work force in 2034. For these kids, school readiness is about being ready for schools as they are now, and also how they will evolve. The Bay Area Discovery Museum’s Center for Childhood Creativity (CCC) will present findings from the recently released white paper that summarizes new insights into school readiness. The CCC has also partnered with the CA State Library to pilot a research-based toolkit for supporting school readiness programming in libraries. Hear how this toolkit will promote the skills, knowledge and habits of mind most critical for young children to build for future success in school.
