Preparing the littlest learners: Four-year-old kindergarten enrollment and kindergarten readiness in MMSD: Research brief

Description:

This report explores the association between enrollment in four-year-old kindergarten in the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) and the literacy and socioemotional learning skills of students entering kindergarten in the district. Building on our previous report documenting enrollment patterns in MMSD's four-year-old kindergarten program (hereafter, "4K"), this report addresses the following questions: 1. Is MMSD 4K enrollment associated with higher levels of kindergarten readiness (as measured by literacy and socioemotional skills)? 2. Do the associations between MMSD 4K enrollment and kindergarten readiness vary across racial/ethnic groups, free/reduced lunch participation or parental education? 3. Is 4K site type (school-based or early care and education sites) associated with varying levels of kindergarten readiness? 4. How does the association between 4K enrollment and kindergarten readiness in MMSD compare to Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS), a peer urban district in Wisconsin? (author abstract)
