Why does prekindergarten matter?

Prekindergarten makes a big difference
for small children.

Kids who go to prekindergarten:

  • Are more prepared for kindergarten
  • Have better reading and writing skills
  • Do better in grades K – 12
  • Have better social skills, behavior and conduct
  • Have greater success in life
