State of Preschool Yearbooks

Our annual publication tracking the funding, access, and policies of state-funded preschool programs

Overview

The State Preschool Yearbook is an annual publication which has tracked the funding, access, and policies of state-funded preschool programs since the 2001-2002 school year. The Yearbook seeks to improve the public’s knowledge and understanding of state efforts to expand the availability of high-quality education to young children in the 21st century. We hope that this report will serve as a resource for policymakers, advocates, and researchers to make more informed decisions as state-funded preschool education moves forward to another decade of progress.
