Why is Preschool Important?
- Children in high-quality preschools display better language, cognitive and social skills than children who attended low-quality programs. (Cost, Quality and Outcomes, 1999)
- Children who participated in cognitive focused preschools were less likely to repeat a grade or be referred to special education. (Art Reynolds, 2000)
