Strong Start to Kindergarten Resources
Strong Start to Kindergarten documents are designed to help adults support children in learning skills that are important for kindergarten. These documents were developed through Evanston Cradle to Career, with input from District 65 kindergarten educators, preschool educators, parents, equity advocates, and community members. Strong Start to Kindergarten: An Activity Guide for Families and Caregivers (available in English and Spanish) is based on District 65's Strong Start to Kindergarten Goals for Educators.
