In the dynamic landscape of early childhood education, the notion of reading readiness has sparked prolonged interest and debate. This pivotal phase marks the initiation of young learners into the realm of literacy, laying a foundation with profound implications for their academic and lifelong success. Amidst the prevalent digital age distractions, rekindling a reading culture becomes imperative. This study delves into the multifaceted aspects of reading readiness, exploring socio-economic, physical, and cognitive dimensions, as well as challenges faced by teachers.

The developmental journey of reading readiness involves the intricate maturation of mental, physical, and socio-emotional factors as children transition from non-readers to readers. Addressing challenges in speech organs' functionality, word recognition, and socio-emotional stability, the study emphasizes the role of parents in fostering a love for reading through a stimulating environment. Acknowledging the transformative power of stories in enhancing creativity, imagination, and social-emotional development, the research advocates for educators' recognition of the significance of reading comprehension.

Central to the study is an investigation into parental influence on their children's reading journey, analyzing the Reading Readiness of Young Learners in Adlaon Integrated School, S.Y 2023-2024. The focus extends to identifying critical components shaping children's reading readiness. The collected data aims to support the development of targeted reading readiness programs, particularly for kindergarteners, with the modest yet crucial goal of nurturing their basic learning skills. This study underscores the necessity and benefits of such initiatives, recognizing their potential to profoundly shape the future learning abilities of countless children.
