21 FAnullnullnullnullnullnullR nullnullThe nullst day of kindergarten marks an important milestone for many nullenullearnulllds and their parents. nullaving graduated from prenullchool and naptime, kindergarten represents an auspicious beginning to the nenull decade of formal education. nullet for many children, that nullst day of kindergarten arrives before they are truly prepared. nullccording to recent nullC research, some null per cent of children in nullritish Columbia begin kindergarten lacking the basic skills they renullire to succeed in class. These nulldings arise from the nullrly Childhood nullevelopment nullCnull nullapping nullronullct, an initiative of the nulluman nullrly nullarning nullartnership nullnullnull based at nullC. nullased on complenullearly child developmental data organinulled into regional and local nullrisdictions, the maps illustrate the relative vulnerability of children in a particular area in a way that is meaningful to those communities. The maps break down results by neighbourhood or regions, enabling communities to see in which areas children may be developmentally vulnerable as denulled by the nulle areas of the nullnullscale nullee sidebarnull nullor nullnull researchers, the information is signinullant in working with local communities to integrate lacking resources and services. nullaps have a huge power of creating ownership in the data,nullsays nulloanne nullhroeder, Community nullevelopment nullanager at nullnull. nullnstead of looking at numbers on a table, looking at maps of your own community is a powerful way to engage people. nullaps allow researchers, policynullmakers and the community to see how  kids are doing from one neighbourhood  to the nenull.nullnulln each wave of the study, the nullnullnullapping nullronullct typically collects nullnulldata from null,000 children across the province. nullritish Columbia is the nullst province to map nullnulldata at the neighbourhood level. nullnull researchers have also digitinulled the maps of null0 neighbourhoods within nullC., providing policynullakers and community members with greater access to this data. nully role is to mobilinulle communities to use the nullnullnullapping nullronullct information, making them champions for their local cause,nullsays nullhroeder. The implementation of nullnulldata in nullnull’s nullnullnullapping nullronullct was funded by The null nullinistries of Children and nullamily nullevelopment, of nullducation, and of nullealthy nullving and nullport.DInullRnullInull IN nullnullnullnullnullNInullbnullcnull nullnull bnullsicsnulle early Denullelonullent instrument nullnullnullis a populationnullased tool used to assess children’s developmental readiness at nullndergarten. nullhe Enull is a checnullist completed by teachers on behalf of the children in their classrooms to assess children’s school readiness in nulle areasnullphysical health and wellnulleing, social nullowledge and competence, emotional health and maturity, language and cognitive development, and communication snulllls and general nullowledge.
