Children attending the Pre-K 4 SA program have again surpassed national standards in cognitive, literacy, and math outcomes and closed the gap on others. The kindergarten readiness program for 4-year-olds launched in San Antonio has shown year-after-year achievement.
Westat evaluated this innovative program and has released the Pre-K 4 SA Evaluation Report: Year 4 (PDF format).
More than 2,000 children started this year’s program. Many of them would not have access to early childhood education had it not been for Pre-K 4 SA.
The ultimate goal continues to be to improve school readiness to spur further academic achievement. Ultimately, success with Pre-K 4 SA can lead to a better prepared, more productive workforce.
