Do you wonder what research really says about how to support school readiness? This 90 minute webinar will discuss the CCC's recent position paper, Re-imagining School Readiness. Based on a comprehensive review of cognitive and developmental psychology, the key findings aim to surface the skills and conditions that matter most for a child's success in school and life, and to guide educators and others (including families) in designing learning experiences and environments to support this development.

The Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit is a suite of research-backed resources created for librarians to help families prepare children ages 0 to 8 for success in school and in life. The toolkit was developed by the Center for Childhood Creativity at the Bay Area Discovery Museum in collaboration with the California State Library. This 4-part series of webinars will introduce librarians to the research, practical implications, and resources offered in the toolkit, which is available in its entirety for free online. You can find the toolkit at this link.

This webinar series is sponsored by the California State Library in order to provide a free professional development resource for any and all library staff in California and to any interested library staff anywhere.
