Kindergarten provides the foundation that children need to be successful in school and in life. In kindergarten, children are building important skills that will help them learn throughout their lives. We all know the importance of building academic skills, like reading and math, but children in kindergarten must also develop critical social and emotional learning skills to become successful students. These skills are teachable, and every child can learn them with your help.
In Philadelphia, we know how important social and emotional learning skills are. That is why we have 14 of these skills on the kindergarten report card. Conquering Kindergarten provides resources for families and teachers to help them support children’s development of these skills so they can succeed in school!
