Session Title: The Kindergarten Readiness Debate: Evaluating Social Emotional Development and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Services in a Multi-Site Collaborative The Complex Ecology of Early Childhood Mental Health Services The Consortium for Resilient Young Children (CRYC) has long advocated for the social emotional development of preschool children in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. This presentation will discuss the program philosophy and practice of the Children’s Home of Cincinnati, a key member of the CRYC. This presentation will also discuss the organizational structure in which this evaluation occurs. Framing the discussion of kindergarten readiness within the programmatic context of early childhood mental health consultation services is essential to developing a holistic definition of kindergarten readiness. Knowing Every Child:Exploring a Culture of Evaluation in a Early Childhood Mental Context The Consortium for Resilient Young Children (CRYC) maintains a culture of evaluation across all partner organizations. The CRYC culture of evaluation draws upon years of institutional support for assessing the impact of early childhood mental health service delivery on the social and emotional skill development of children. Central to making decisions based on assessment data is creating an infrastructure of support and communication around data in which teachers, consultants, and parents participate. This presentation will explore the central role evaluation has played in the CRYC, the Children’s Home of Cincinnati, and by extension the Resilient Children Project. This presentation will highlight the historical understanding of how the CRYC conceptualizes evaluating kindergarten readiness.
