Every child should have a great start. That means access to quality preschool education so they can enter school with the social and cognitive skills that will help them succeed.
The achievement gap between low-income and affluent students starts before they enter kindergarten. The same is true for minority students and English language learners. Fortunately, evidence shows that high-quality, full-day preschool programs help to close the achievement gap and prepare children for success in school and throughout their lives.
