Families, thank you for being your child’s first teacher and our partner in supporting your kindergartener. The KIDS tool allows us to build a common language for talking about your child’s growth in social emotional, language and literacy and math development. The ideas here can help you learn more about what your child is learning in kindergarten, support your child’s learning at home, and provide you with helpful background information about KIDS.


Check out this series of short videos​ aligned with the required measures of Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS). The videos feature real families sharing ways to support their 3- to 5-year-olds as they develop social-emotional, math, and literacy skills. Use the videos and tip sheets here to boost your child’s learning at home…maybe even while you’re checking off items on your "to-do" list!
