Kybartas, Tyler J.; Oody, Jennifer F.; Fairbrother, Jeffrey T.; Durham, R. Sean; Coe, Dawn P. – Early Child Development and Care, 2021
This study examined whether associations exist between PA intensity, self-regulation, and indicators of school readiness, a proxy for academic achievement, in young children. Thirty young children completed assessments of physical activity, school readiness indicators, and self-regulation. Physical activity intensity was classified as light,…

Duncan, Robert J.; Schmitt, Sara A.; Burke, Maura; McClelland, Megan M. – Grantee Submission, 2018
Self-regulation and academic skills in kindergarten are strong predictors of later achievement. However, many children enter kindergarten without adequate levels of these skills, often because of limited participation in early childhood education. The current study examined a kindergarten readiness summer program (Bridge to Kindergarten; B2K) that…

Schmitt, S. A.; Duncan, R. J.; Budrevich, A.; Korucu, I. – Early Education and Development, 2020
Research Findings: The aim of the current study was to examine the extent to which the effects of preschool classroom quality on children's mathematics is moderated by executive functioning (EF) during the preschool year. The study sample included 102 children (M age = 53.57 months [SD = 5.42]; 49% male) and one of their parents recruited from 26…

Weymeis, Henk; Van Leeuwen, Karla; Braet, Caroline – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2019
School readiness of children with special educational needs (SEN) is still understudied. The present study examined how the presumed bidirectional relationship between impaired academic performance (AP) and internalising problems (IP) could be favourably influenced. In this regard, it was assumed that children's adaptive emotion regulation plays a…

Loomis, Alysse M. – Early Education and Development, 2021
Research Findings: Addressing factors that influence children's self-regulation is a critical step toward closing achievement gaps that have consistently been found for African American and Latino children as well as children living in poverty. Cumulative sociodemographic risk in childhood is now widely understood to be a developmental risk factor…

Mills, Britain; Dyer, Nazly; Pacheco, Daniel; Brinkley, Dawn; Owen, Margaret T.; Caughy, Margaret O. – Child Development, 2019
This study examined the development of emerging self-regulation (SR) skills across the preschool years and relations to academic achievement in kindergarten and first grade. SR skills of 403 low-income African American and Latino children were measured at 2&1/2, 3&1/2, and 5 years (kindergarten). Reading and math skills were measured at 5…

McCoy, Dana C.; Gonzalez, Kathryn; Jones, Stephanie – Child Development, 2019
This study explores children's early academic and self-regulatory skills as potential pathways through which a preschool enrichment program--the Chicago School Readiness Project (CSRP)--may contribute to low-income children's long-term outcomes (N = 466; M[subscript age] at baseline = 4.10 years). We find that CSRP's impact on high school grades…

Jahromi, Laudan B.; Umaña-Taylor, Adriana J.; Updegraff, Kimberly A.; Derlan Williams, Chelsea; Kirkman, Katherine – Developmental Psychology, 2020
This study examined whether the mechanism linking changes in Mexican-origin adolescent mothers' depressive symptoms to children's subsequent self-regulation and academic readiness was via their emotion scaffolding when their children were 2, 3, 4, and 5 years of age. Data included home interviews with adolescent mothers (N = 204), observations of…

Education Commission of the States, 2020
Following a high-quality early care and pre-K experience, the kindergarten-through-third-grade years set the foundation upon which future learning builds; and strengthening this continuum creates opportunities for later success. Key components of a quality experience in K-3 include school readiness and transitions, kindergarten requirements,…

Vernon-Feagans, Lynne; Garrett-Peters, Patricia; Willoughby, Michael – Developmental Psychology, 2016
Behavioral regulation is an important school readiness skill that has been linked to early executive function (EF) and later success in learning and school achievement. Although poverty and related risks, as well as negative parenting, have been associated with poorer EF and behavioral regulation, chaotic home environments may also play a role in…

Djambazova-Popordanoska, Snezhana – Educational Review, 2016
Effective regulation of both positive and negative emotions plays a pivotal role in young children's emotional and cognitive development and later academic achievement. A compelling body of evidence has highlighted the symbiotic relationship between emotion regulation competencies and young children's emotional health, in particular their mood and…

McLear, Caitlin; Trentacosta, Christopher J.; Smith-Darden, Joanne – Early Education and Development, 2016
Research Findings: Early reading and mathematics skills predict later academic success, and child self-regulation and secure parent-child relationships are both predictors of early academic skills. Self-regulatory and family relationship factors have rarely been studied together as predictors of early academic success in populations of young…

The current study evaluated the initial efficacy of three intervention programs aimed at improving school readiness in preschool children with externalizing behavior problems (EBP). Participants for this study included 45 preschool children (76% boys; M[subscript age] = 5.16 years; 84% Hispanic/Latino background) with at-risk or clinically…
