High-quality preschool settings help children build important social and academic knowledge in a safe and comfortable environment. Children who attend a quality preschool enter Kindergarten with better reading, math, and language skills, compared to children who do not attend preschool.
The studies conducted by LAUP’s Research & Evaluation team demonstrate that children who attend quality early learning programs are well prepared to enter Kindergarten, and go on to succeed in elementary school and beyond.
