TN-ELDS

The Tennessee Early Childhood Education Early Learning Developmental Standards were developed to provide documentation of the continuum of developmental milestones from birth through age 5 based on the research about the processes, sequences, and long term consequences of early learning and development.

     Revised Early Literacy and Language Standards for 4 year-olds


    The Revised TN Early Learning Developmental Standards for 4 year-olds were written to support teachers, care givers and families who want to provide high quality, developmentally appropriate early learning experiences for children before they begin kindergarten. These standards align directly with the Kindergarten Common Core English Language Arts standards adopted by TN Department of Education in 2011. Helping children develop the concepts documented in these standards will provide them with the foundational skills necessary to their continued growth in kindergarten and beyond. New resources for implementing the new standards are forthcoming.
