Readiness Matters

Readiness Matters (for parents of babies, toddlers, & preschoolers) – Did you know that school readiness starts in the early years, even before your child is old enough to walk or talk? The library and the Warren County Early Childhood Committee have compiled recommended activities to help your child get ready to grow, ready to learn, and ready to succeed! 

General Knowledge and Mathematics (cognitive)

Health and Physical Well-Being

Social and Emotional Development

Language and Communication Development

Approaches to Learning (adaptive)

General Knowledge and Mathematics (cognitive)

  • Expose your child to different kinds of blocks, soft blocks for very young children and wooden blocks for older children. Encourage your child to build and create things.
  • When traveling, ask your child to count white houses on one side of the street, while you count white houses on the other side. Talk about who counted more or less.
  • When sorting laundry, ask your child to sort socks and shirts, putting socks in one pile and shirts in another.
  • When shopping, ask your child to help you by putting 3 apples into a bag or 2 loaves of bread into the cart. When they have done that, ask them to add one more.
  • Say favorite counting nursery rhymes together, such as, “One two buckle my shoe.”
  • Using a toy phone, make up phone numbers for your child to dial.
    Play, “I Spy” with your child, using comparative words. “I spy a glass that is empty.” “I spy a book that is very heavy.” “I spy a jar with few pickles in it.”

Health and Physical Well-Being

 

  • Encourage your child to explore. Then watch and comment as your child tries new things.
  • Provide a safe, clean, flat floor space for your child to freely squirm, roll over, crawl, walk and run.
