Abstract/Description: This project studied the relationships between preschoolers' school readiness skills and the parental involvement they experience. Children's own characteristics, their family characteristics, and the parental involvement they experience, including parental home practice and informal education, are studied using the 2007 National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) School Readiness Survey. The participants were a national total sample of 2620 parents of children aged three to five years old. The results suggest that child age, speaking English at home, previous experience with preschool programs, SES, single parent status, and parental involvement all influence child's school readiness level, while age, speaking English at home, previous experience with preschool programs, SES and single parent status also influence parental involvement behaviors.
