Pre-K Impact Study Final Report

Full Description: 

The Pre-K Impact study examined the nature and possible impact of prekindergarten expansion on the supply and quality of child care. This report presents the final findings of the study. Researchers found that child care centers offering state-funded preK were significantly more likely than comparison centers to be located in high-poverty neighborhoods, to serve significantly more children from low-income families, to serve more racially diverse populations, and to serve children attending care full-time. These findings quell early education experts’ concerns that fewer early care and education opportunities would be available to children from low-income families as states expand preK.
