The state of preschool 2016: State preschool yearbook

This annual report examines access to, quality standards in, and resources devoted to state-funded preschool programs for 3- and 4-year-old children during the 2015-2016 school year. It is based on a survey of administrators of state-funded preschool programs. The report includes profiles for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and United States territories. Key findings include a continued increase in enrollment and an increase in state funding for preschool programs by more than $564 million. A new set of quality standards benchmarks is introduced in this yearbook, with six programs meeting all of the current and two programs meeting all of the new benchmarks.
