See pp. 39-40 for discussion of association between readiness to learn and early childhood education activities.
Excerpts from the report:
The present report used data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY) to describe the readiness to learn at school of Canadian children who were 5 years old in 2002/2003. It describes home environment factors that may be linked to measures of readiness to learn. Finally, the report looks back two years in time, to see if trends in readiness to learn were already apparent when the children were 3 years old.
