Strategies to Make the Vision a Reality

Current Status

Connecticut leads the nation in access to preschool. In Connecticut, 63% of 3- and 4-year olds attend preschool, compared with 46% nationally (the range across states is 30% to 63%).4

During the 2012-13 school year, roughly half of Connecticut’s school districts offered full-time kindergarten to all of their students. By 2015, that percentage had risen to 93%.5

The University of Connecticut offers a focused early childhood leadership program for both aspiring and existing school leaders.
