Linking early learning and elementary learning can help children and families experience smooth transitions and continuity of practice from early learning into the kindergarten year. The Issaquah School District is committed to actively growing our partnerships with community preschools and in-home care providers to support this collaborative vision. Opportunities for involvement and professional development, as well as resources, will be posted to this page below.

Kindergarten Readiness Guide:

Children learn in different ways and at different rates. They come to school with varying skills. The Kindergarten Readiness document highlights some of the skills children need to be prepared for kindergarten. The Kindergarten Readiness Guide has suggestions about ways to work with your child to help him/her be more prepared and excited for school.
