School Readiness and Health. Instructor's Guide
California Childcare Health Program
This "Instructor's Guide" provides trainers with an outline for the teaching of the School Readiness and Health module. Participants will be introduced to the concept of school readiness and will learn about the importance of health to school readiness. Participants will learn how Child Care Health Advocates (CCHAs) can support best practices for the promotion of school readiness in their own early care and education (ECE) programs. In addition, CCHAs can influence families and programs in the wider community, which can, in turn, increase children's readiness for kindergarten. Learning Objectives include: (1) To define school readiness; (2) To identify the links between health and school readiness; (3) To describe how quality of care in ECE programs improves children's readiness for school; and (4) To describe how CCHAs can play a role in the preparation of a child's school readiness. Appended are: (1) School Readiness Case Scenarios; and (2) Using the School Readiness and Health Module.
