Kindergarten and school readiness study seeks parental participation

The NDSU Extension Service is conducting a research project to understand how parents perceive their child's preparation for kindergarten and provide resources to parents interested in school readiness.

The “Gearing Up for Kindergarten” research project is looking for interested parents who are willing to complete two brief surveys. The surveys will be conducted in late 2008 and again in the spring. Interested parents must have a child preparing to enter kindergarten in the fall of 2009.

Sean Brotherson and Sharon Query, NDSU family researchers, are seeking to answer questions on how parents and children are gearing up for kindergarten. “We know that many parents are very concerned and interested in their child's school readiness before kindergarten,” Brotherson said. “We want to learn how to help them prepare their children successfully.”

Participating individuals will receive a $25 gift certificate to a local retail store upon completion of the first survey and another $25 gift certificate upon completion of the second survey. Participation is limited to the first 125 individuals and one adult per family.

Interested parents can receive more information or enroll in the study by contacting Brotherson at 1-8113 or sean.brotherson@ndsu.edu. Participants must live in North Dakota. Please indicate your interest by Dec. 20.
