Nick Jr. invites you to be part of a great adventure: Beyond the Backpack, a nationwide initiative to promote overall kindergarten readiness for preschoolers. Start this journey by completing the readiness check-in to receive a customized learning plan for your child.
Getting ready for school requires more than having a backpack full of supplies. Beyond the Backpack can help you build and support a solid foundation for your little one’s education.
Nick Jr. Beyond the Backpack provides parents and caregivers with tips, activities, and resources focusing on five major areas that have been recognized as critical to kindergarten readiness: Family Engagement, Health & Wellness, Literacy Skills, Social & Emotional Skills, and STEM Skills (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math).
