MORE STUDENTS ARE enrolling in state preschool programs than ever before as states continue to invest in them. But those increases are eclipsed by a slump in the rate of growth and in per-student spending, the latter of which is an important indicator of quality.
HARTFORD FOUNDATION’S EARLY CHILDHOOD COLLABORATIVE
Our team works to align services, practices, policies, and resources at the local, regional, and state levels. Commitment, care, and support for children and families must happen at all of these levels in order to build and sustain a quality early childhood system.
