Friedman-Krauss, A. H., Steven Barnett, W., Garver, K. A., Weisenfeld, G. & Gardiner, B. A. (2020). The State of Preschool 2019. New Brunswick, N,J., USA : National Institute for Early Education Research.




The State of Preschool 2019 annual report finds leaders in state-funded preschool include both “Red” and “Blue” states, indicating preschool is one of few bipartisan issues. More children than ever were served in state-funded preschool during the 2018-2019 school year.

However, increases from last year were small, leaving too many children behind. The current economic crisis threatens further advances in state preschool enrollment, funding, and quality. Support from the federal government is needed to help sustain current funding and enrollment levels and prevent the backslide seen after the Great Recession.

This report, based on data from the 2018-2019 academic year, shows just 34 percent of 4-year-olds and almost 6 percent of 3-year-olds were enrolled in state-funded preschool, little change over the last few years. State spending per child was flat since last year after adjusting for inflation. However, seven states made policy changes to gain an additional benchmark for minimum quality standards.
