The Best Start initiative provides support to our youngest students with literacy and numeracy during the first year of school. It includes a State-wide Kindergarten assessment that helps teachers identify the literacy and numeracy skills of each student at the beginning of Kindergarten. Children start school with a range of early literacy and numeracy knowledge, skills and understandings. The Best Start assessment will help teachers develop effective learning programs that build upon what students know and can do when they start Kindergarten. For more information, see the parent guides for Literacy and Numeracy.
