Washington State Schools Kindergarten Survey 2001

More than 20 years of research validate the critically important role that high-quality early learning has on a child’s school readiness, academic achievement, and lifelong earnings while decreasing juvenile and adult crime.

Aware of this research, parents, teachers, educators, administrators, and school boards have begun to develop early learning programs in their school districts to enhance school readiness and close the student achievement gap.

EOI’s studies from 2001 and 2004 show that school districts are going beyond state-mandated requirements for both pre-k and kindergarten programs, ensuring a strong start for Washington’s children. Learn more about our research on the study page.

EOI gratefully acknowledges the support of the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Foundation for Child Development which, through its Mapping the PK-3 Continuum (MAP) initiative, supports the restructuring of pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and grades 1 to 3 into a well-aligned first level of public education for children ages three to eight in the United States.
