Social and emotional development in the early years is a critical skill necessary for school readiness and life, yet parents are unsure about preparing their children adequately so they are ready to learn. One in three children are arriving at kindergarten "unready" to learn and teachers are blaming parents for not doing their job. Striking differences in what children know and can do is evident during the first three years. These differences are strongly associated with SES and are predicative of later academic perfom1ance. This project promotes social and emotional development beginning in infancy as a critical foundation of school readiness and recommends strategies that foster school readiness in children 0-3.
