Early Learning Assessment Updates - January 2017

Happy New Year!  We hope everyone had a restful winter break. Much like the anticipation of spring during this time of year, preschool is an exciting time for young children and the educators who teach them. Throughout the school year, you witness the growing competence of the children you teach. As the children's skills develop, they are able to express and demonstrate an array of emerging skills. As a result of your efforts and their efforts every day, the children in your classroom establish the skills necessary to succeed in school.
