Preschool Skill Sheet


NOCAC Head Start/Home Based staff will document children’s development by viewing them in observational style using the Preschool Skill Sheet.


  1. To complete the Preschool Skill Sheet, observe children individually during free play or during planned activities and document the date that the skill was observed to be mastered by the child.  This is not an assessment so the observations are informal.
  2. This form is for the families to be able to view their specific child’s progress toward kindergarten readiness.  Teachers will update the Preschool Skill Sheet before each home visit or conference to be able to review it with the families.  At the last conference, the teachers will send the form home.
