Review and Revision of the Draft Seattle Kindergarten Readiness Guidelines

The City of Seattle’s Office for Education/Human Services Department Early Education Collaboratrive charged the Universal Preschool Assessment & Accountability Work Group with the task of creating culturally and linguistically relevant kindergarten readiness guidelines to support assessment of preschool children in the city of Seattle. This framework provides guidelines for early learning professionals to be able to assess children’s development in five domains– 1) Cognitive and General Knowledge, 2) Language, Literacy, and Communication, 3) Physical Health, Wellbeing, and Motor Development, 4) Social & Emotional Development, and 5) Approaches to Learning. This draft was prepared for distribution to constituents — early learning service providers, community members, and other stakeholders — for a vetting process to gather feedback in finalizing the assessment guidelines and recommendations for the Universal Preschool to Kindergarten [UPK] Planning Council.
