Birth to Kindergarten Early Learning Standards

The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction recently completed an extensive review and revision process of the North Dakota Early Learning Standards: Birth to Kindergarten. In collaboration with the North Dakota Department of Human Services, a team of 22 North Dakota educators, early childhood service providers, and caregivers wrote the new standards with a comprehensive focus towards kindergarten and school readiness.
