born in the year 2001. Children are assessed using state of the art 
assessment tools, parents are interviewed as well as child care 
providers and school personnel. Together with the Kindergarten 
component of this early childhood studies program, the survey informs 
the research and general community about children's health, early 
learning, development and education experiences. The focus of this 
survey is on characteristics of children and their families that 
influence children's first experiences with the demands of formal 
schools as well as early health care and in- and out-of-home
