About KIDS

KIDS: Kindergarten Individual Development Survey

A young child’s learning in areas such as language and literacy, mathematics, and social and emotional learning, and development of skills such as curiosity, creativity, and perseverance can better prepare the child for success in school. 

KIDS is a new tool that teachers across the state of Illinois started using in Fall 2017 to observe kindergarten students’ development in critical learning areas within the first 40 days of school. The observations take place as kindergarten students go about their daily routines of learning and playing in the classroom. Teachers use the observations to place each child’s abilities on a learning pathway and share the results with their families. Information from KIDS helps families understand what they can do at home to promote their children’s healthy growth and development.

The following tools were created for families to learn more about KIDS.
