Increase Investments in Prekindergarten Programs

Just over half of three- and four-year-olds (not yet in kindergarten) are enrolled in public or private preschool programs. Children in low- and moderate-income families are less likely to be enrolled than children in higher-income families.

Solutions:
– Provide funding and support for state efforts to enact or expand high-quality prekindergarten programs for four-year-olds.
