    Kindergarten Readiness Tips & Tools

    • Atlanta Public Schools offers several summer opportunities before Kindergarten. Check our Power Up page this spring to see if your school has a KinderCamp, or whether we’ll be offering a district Summer Transition Program.
      • You can also fill out an interest form for KinderCamps for Benteen, Continental Colony, Deerwood, Dunbar, Dobbs, Fickett, Garden Hills, Hollis, Kimberly, Scott, and Usher online here. 
      • The link for our Rising K Summer Transition Program (targeting students who did not attend a full year of Pre-K) is here. The application will open on March 1st. 
      • The Rising Pre-K Summer Transition Program for Spanish-speaking students can be found here, and also opens on March 1st. 
    • Ready4KGA is a great text messaging app that sends fun tips for engaging and supporting young children. Text 'Georgia' to 70138 to sign up!
    • The Mayor’s Summer Reading Club hosts a variety of opportunities throughout the summer. Make sure to check out their calendar!
    • Additionally, did you know that Georgia has standards starting at birth? You can see what the standards (e.g. learning expectations) are for each age group by each domain.
    • You can also download a developmental milestones app here - this one is from the CDC. If you suspect that an infant, child, or young adult has a developmental delay or disability, Atlanta Public Schools Child Find can open a window of hope for a brighter future.
