Advice From The Experts

"Children who attended an extended-day, extended-year preschool program experienced greater improvement in test scores compared to peers who attended half-day programs. The difference in performance gains over time was evident for measures of both verbal and mathematic abilities. These results indicate that duration is an important consideration for the effectiveness of preschool education".

Kenneth B. Robin, Ellen C. Frede and W. Steven Barnett. "Is More Better? The Effects of Full-Day vs. Half-Day Preschool on Early School Achievement." NIEER Working Paper. NIEER, May 2006.

Recently researchers from Georgetown University studied Oklahoma’s universal prekindergarten program. As a group, the Oklahoma children attending pre-K programs had better reading, math, and writing skills than children who attended Head Start programs or did not go to a public preschool program (Gormley et al. 2008). Likewise, an ongoing evaluation of New Mexico PreK found significant gains in children’s math and early literacy skills (Hustedt et al. 2008). Other studies show similar positive results. For example, one study found that children attending state-funded pre-K programs in five states (Michigan, New Jersey, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and West Virginia) gained significantly in early language, literacy, and math development.
