This brief addresses issues of preschool access and quality that are specific to Hispanic children as well as other largely disadvantaged and immigrant groups.

The 2011 Yearbook examines the 2010-2011 school year as well as documenting a decade of progress since the first Yearbook collected data on the 2001-2002 school year. Twenty-eight percent of America’s 4-year-olds were enrolled in a state-funded preschool program in the 2010-2011 school year even as per child funding was cut, stressing the importance of ensuring quality in existing programs and expanding access to all children. 

This NIEER working paper presents five options for studying the effectiveness of state-funded preschool education programs.

The impact of state-funded pre-K expansion on the quality and supply of child care in New York and Ohio are assessed in this policy brief.
