HOW DOES YOUR STATE RATE?

According to the NIEER’s (National Institute for Early Education Research) latest report issued last year, the District of Columbia, Florida, and Vermont have the highest percentage of 4 year olds enrolled in a state-pre-school program.  District of Columbia, Vermont, and New Jersey have the highest percentage of 3 year olds enrolled.

Wyoming, Utah, South and North Dakota, New Hampshire, Montana, and Idaho have no state funded pre-school programs for either 3 or 4 year old children.  Go to nieer.org/state preschool-yearbook to find pre-school data, and how your state rates in all aspects of state-sponsored pre-school programs.
