Preschools, daycares and childcare centers shared the market for children between the ages of birth to 5 years old. Compound research have correlated the math gains of student in prekindergarten (3 to 5 years old) with their math achievement in middle and high school (Watt, Duncan, Siegler, and Davis-Kean, 2014). Researchers are recommending intervention during these critical years so that students are deviated back towards grade-level proficiency. Therefore, districts across the country are opening their doors to prekindergarten so that Response to Intervention (RtI) can help struggling students turn learning stumbling blocks into developmental stepping stones before enter kindergarten. Defining and understanding the RtI model and its impact on the…show more content…
Through the literature review Early Childhood RtI are examine and explore so that developmentally appropriate practice in early childhood programs keep struggling students on grade level performance.

The screening tool should employ developmentally and age appropriate assessments (Gersten, Rolhus, Clarke, Decker, Wilkins, & Dimino, 2015 and Watts, Duncan, Siegler, & Davis-Kean, 2014). Tier I foundation is built upon providing high-quality math instruction in a least constricted environment to student experiencing math difficulties (MD).
