Preschool Programs Out of Reach for Some Kids of Color and Low-Income Families
Attending high-quality preschool can significantly contribute to the healthy development of young children, especially those in low-income families. Despite its effectiveness, 63% of 3- to 4 year-olds in low-income families do not attend preschool, a higher rate compared to their more affluent counterparts at 46%. Data also show that Hispanic and American Indian children were enrolled in preschool at lower rates than other races.
