The opening of the Detroit school coincides with a survey released this month by the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University. It found that 76 percent of those polled say children exposed to high-quality preschool programs are more self-confident and better adjusted; 73 percent believe they perform better when they reach elementary school; and 71 percent think preschool programs strengthen families by giving parents a solid foundation to help their children get a good start in life.
