Alabama Standards for Early Learning and Development

The newly revised Alabama Standards for Early Learning and Development (ASELD) are now available. View the full PDF document here.

Explore the new 2020 Alabama Standards for Early Learning and Development (ASELD). The ASELDs merge the DHR Early Learning Guidelines, the Developmental Standards for Preschool Children from DECE, Special Education’s Early Learning Progress Profile, and incorporate the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework content into one comprehensive document that can be used to guide all those adults who work in the early childhood profession.

Standards are a set of learning experiences that explain what children should be able to know, learn and do by the end of specific age levels. The ASELDs describe the standards through a learning trajectory, ages birth to age 5, and further align the content with the kindergarten through second grade courses of study.

Public comment is being accepted between June 15 and August 1. Go to https://forms.gle/H9Q5K2QCNAGrFFWk8 to give us your feedback through a short online survey.
