Does Attendance in a Nursery School Program Have an Effect on Reading Readiness at the Kindergarten Level?
To study the effect of nursery school attendance on reading readiness at the kindergarten level, a questionnaire was sent to the parents of 40 kindergarten students in order to determine which children had attended a nursery school program, when, and for how long. Scores on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills were then recorded for all respondents. The national percentile score for total language was used to determine if those students who attended a nursery school scored higher in this test of readiness than those who did not. Results indicated that there was no significant difference in the readiness performance of children in kindergarten who attended nursery school and those who did not. (HOD)
