[en] It is necessary to identify predictors of early reading, foundation of children’s school success. No study in Serbia has investigated this before. The purpose of our study was to identify predictors of early reading and explore correlates of preschool children in Serbia. Children (N=159) age 5-8 were assessed three times over 14 months by an adaptive test, Performance Indicators in Primary School (PIPS). Reading at Time 3 was predicted by gender and mathematics and not by vocabulary and phonological awareness from Time 1. Older children performed higher than younger in vocabulary, phonological awareness, reading and mathematics at Time 1 only. Girls scored higher than boys and Romani scored the lowest in reading at all times. This study offers important information on early reading of an under researched population. Attrition of the sample limits the findings.
