February 9, 2024  |  Virtual Zoom Session

The Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines 2015 have been revised by educators across Texas and the Texas Education Agency. Together, they looked at scientific research for child development to update information and align the revised Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines 2023 to the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge (TEKS) for K-12.


The guidelines define ten domains of early childhood development and provide behaviors and skills in each domain that children should exhibit by the end of prekindergarten. In this session, we will explore the revised guidelines and examine the skills for both PK3s and PK4s. Participants will discuss the learning domains and the expected rigor of skills, as well as receive instructional strategies to support student success. Learn more and register here.
