No study in Serbia has investigated this before. In this study, we explored the links between early socio-emotional skills, behavior, and mathematics and literacy performance of preschool children in Serbia over time. Children (N = 159; 51% of girls) aged 5–8 were ratedbythe teachersontheir socio-emotional skills and behavior, and their mathematics and literacy assessed at three time points over 14 months, twice in preschool and once at entry to school. At time 3, when children entered school, their socio-emotional skills and behavior were associated with gender, mathematics at time 1, and their socio-emotional and behavior ratings at time 2, controlling for maternal education and literacy at time 1. Mathematics at time 3 was associated with mathematics
