The Pathway

The Oklahoma School Readiness Pathway illustrates how Health, Early Care & Learning and Family Support influence a child’s readiness for school. Beginning at birth through school entry, this framework allows us to monitor outcomes and indicators that inform action including policy changes, effective investments and quality improvements.


Why Health? Research shows that children and families who are connected to health services are better able to engage in experiences crucial to the learning process.

Early Care & Learning

Why Early Care & Learning? Children in high-quality early care and learning are more likely to succeed in school and throughout their lifetime.


Family Support

Why Family Support? Engaging and building respectful partnerships with parents strengthens their ability to have supportive, nurturing relationships with their children.
