A Study To Determine the Effectiveness of Preschool on Kindergarten Readiness and Achievement.
Warden, Brenda Adams
This study sought to determine the effect of developmental preschool on school readiness and kindergarten achievement for at-risk children. The study involved 40 preschool-age and 40 kindergarten-age children. These children were divided into two experimental groups and two control groups for the purpose of comparing standardized test scores. The experimental groups had attended or were attending 1 year of developmental preschool; the control groups had not. The Slosson Kindergarten Readiness Test was administered to the experimental and control groups of preschool-age children for comparison, and the Metropolitan Assessment package was administered to the experimental and control groups of kindergarten-age children for comparison. The results indicated a significant difference in kindergarten readiness for the children who attended preschool. In addition, results indicated a significant difference in kindergarten achievement for children who had attended preschool the previous year. This indicates developmental preschool serves as an early intervention strategy resulting in improved school readiness skills and kindergarten achievement. (Author/LPP)
