Guidelines for Inclusive Preschool Practices: A Developmental Framework

This new Framework, that will soon be available, is a comprehensive, unified document that describes the skills and knowledge important for preschool-age children in North Dakota across 9 domains. Although the content is divided into distinct domains, early childhood curriculum will naturally combine and integrate skills across domains. The indicator and their associated examples describe what children should know and be able to do by the time they exit a preschool program. The Framework articulates the learning and development goals that will prepare the children to be successful in kindergarten. The rate and sequence in which children may acquire the skills described in the Framework will vary.
