A wealth of research suggests that high-quality Pre-K programs can significantly improve student readiness for school. However, it is often the case that the initial benefits of scaled-up Pre-K programs diminish in magnitude once children enter elementary school—a pattern known as Pre-K fadeout. In this presentation, Dr. Little will discuss the movement to better align Pre-K with the early grades (P-3 alignment) and specific strategies for doing so.
