Franklin Public School’s Early Childhood School Readiness involves the
Schools, Child, Family and Community
Franklin Public Schools welcomes and respects the multi-cultural and diverse families in our community. We strive to provide a smooth transition through open communication between adults and educators. Franklin Public Schools’ early childhood programs value and utilize developmentally appropriate practice to raise student achievement, while at the same time fostering their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.
Readiness is an ongoing process that includes social-emotional development. A ready child feels good about one self, gets along with others and engages in social conversation and play. They are able to regulate their emotions, follow directions and begin to think of appropriate solutions to conflicts.
The family is the child’s first educator. The family is responsible for providing for the child’s basic needs as well as guiding their social and emotional development. The home environment should nurture the child’s curiosity and enthusiasm. Families are active partners with the Franklin community and schools.
The Franklin Community has a responsibility to partner with the schools. This partnership will invest in education by exchanging ideas, solving problems and building a comprehensive educational experience.
Through the collaborative effort of the schools, families and community, each child will be provided a supportive, healthy and safe learning environment where they will be ready for school and can become successful life long learners.
