Ready for School? Ready for Life?

School Readiness and School Success: from Research to Policy and Practice

November 12-13, 2009, Château Laurier Hotel, Quebec City

Organized under the joint auspices of the Strategic Knowledge Cluster on Early Child Development (SKC-ECD) and the Centre of Excellence for Early Childhood Development (CEECD), this conference brought together researchers (international and national), policy-makers and practitioners to discuss research, practice and political issues related to school readiness.

This conference highlighted research findings showing that school readiness (1) is multi-faceted and can be reliably assessed in preschool, (2) predicts well to a variety of later school outcomes, including school persistence and school dropout, (3) can be predicted by a variety of child and family factors, and (4) can be improved by a range of policies and programs.
