Content Summary

There is no single path to starting a preschool program at a charter school.

Schools must also carefully consider what length of program they can feasibly offer, given their unique financial situation. Several recent studies have demonstrated that enrollment in a preschool program can help prevent learning difficulties, support more positive outcomes in later testing scores, lead to higher pro-social behavioral assessments, reduce special education issues and diminish the necessity of costly remediation.
