A recently released report entitled, “The Well-Being of Young Children in Middletown” says the program has been an unmitigated success in preparing young children socially and academically for elementary school, and giving poor and minority families greater access to preschool. The report cites developmental tests given to all children entering kindergarten in 2001-02 academic year, showing the longer a child spends in preschool, the better their motor, conceptual and language skills.
