Quality Early Learning

Children with access to quality early learning opportunities are more prepared for kindergarten. They have increased vocabulary, better language, math and social skills, and more positive relationships with classmates. And as they go forward in school and life, they are less likely to need special education services or be held back a grade and are more likely to graduate and go on to college.

In fact, multiple studies show that quality pre-K programs generate a return on investment of seven (7) to ten (10) dollars for every dollar invested. The benefits to communities include decreased use of welfare and social services, remedial education, and job re-training.

Quality Early Learning is defined as the percentage of Arizona 3- and 4-year old children that are in high-quality preschool settings as determined by Read on Arizona.
