High-quality preschool programs provide peace-of-mind for working adults, help identify and address early developmental issues, build confidence and independence in children, and deepen parenting skills.
Families’ experiences finding and interacting with local preschool programs should be at the center of every decision made. Families who have had less access to preschool—because of cost, racial discrimination, language barriers, etc., are especially important partners in designing programs that lift all families up.
