Kindergarten Readiness: Every Child Should Be Prepared for School

Why Is It Important?

Decades of research by economists, neuroscientists, and educators prove that investments in the first five years – including high-quality preschool – result in long-term gains for students in their academic career and life. Students who show up ready for kindergarten are more likely to read on grade level and continue a success academic career. If we want to improve outcomes for generations, fix our talent pipeline, strengthen our schools and communities, and produce long-term, meaningful savings to taxpayers, we have to invest in making sure that our children have a solid start. We need our children to show up ready for kindergarten.
