Early Learning

Standards

The New York State Prekindergarten, Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade Learning Standards: A Resource for School Success are now available. These grade-specific resources consolidate all learning standards into one comprehensive document that provides a uniform format to make them easily accessible for teachers, specialists, administrators and parents.

From a planning perspective, these documents highlight the importance of addressing children’s development and learning across all developmental domains.  These resources are not a curriculum, assessment, or set of teaching strategies but rather, resources for the learning that students should  accomplish by the end of  prekindergarten, kindergarten, first, and second grade.
