Texas PreKindergarten Guidelines (Spiral-Bound)

  • $ 2500



Design meaningful and purposeful experiences for young children to provide them a foundation that guides their growth in all aspects of development.

The Texas Pre-K Guidelines are based on current knowledge of theory and scientific research about how children develop and learn; they reflect the growing consensus among early childhood professional organizations that a greater emphasis be placed on young children’s conceptual learning, acquisition of basic skills and participation in meaningful, relevant learning experiences. They provide professional development as the key to high-quality prekindergarten programs, the involvement of families for better school readiness of children, strategies for bilingual instruction, considerations for children with special needs and disabilities, and methods for monitoring children’s progress.

The Texas Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines are intended to be useful to a broad audience, including school districts, Head Start programs, child care providers, and, most importantly, children’s families.

The guidelines provide a means to align prekindergarten programs with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
