The development of the Common Core Standards sought to guide educators across the nation in providing commensurate academic programs and to define what students should know for career and college readiness. As of August 2013, forty-three states, the District of Columbia and four territories had adopted the Common Core Standards for grades kindergarten through twelve in the areas of English language arts and mathematics (National Association for the Education of Young Children [NAEYC], 2012; National Governors Association Center for Best Practices & Council of Chief State School Officers, 2010; Race to the Top Fund, 2014). To ensure kindergarten readiness, rigorous early childhood education must be implemented to optimize the success in the K-12 setting.
