Firm Foundations – Supporting School Readiness

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started
School readiness can mean very different things including adult instruction in literacy skills and holistic learning through play.

This unit will consider school readiness activities intended for children and adults across a range of situations including formal, informal, and home contexts.  

It will draw on contributions from fields of knowledge including psychology, sociology, education, and early childhood studies.  Students will explore the nature of human learning embedded in relationships, communication, culture, and the material world. Students will study and evaluate local activities intended to help children, families and schools be ready for each other. The evaluation of the activities will be informed through the study of research on the influence of school readiness initiatives past and present in English and international contexts.
