TN Early Learning Developmental Standards
As Tennessee moves forward with the adoption of the Common Core State Standards for Reading/English Language Arts and Mathematics, it became imperative to revise and align the TN Early Learning Developmental Standards for four year olds with the Common Core State Standards. These revised standards provide a framework to support the work of teachers, care givers and families who plan and provide learning experiences for these children. When everyone is working from the same framework, all children have an opportunity to be successful and to enter school ready to learn for a lifetime. The Department of Education and others will continue to provide additional information and professional development to best support the implementation of these standards.
