    California Preschool Study (45 Min)

    Thursday, June 19, 2008
    1:30 – 3:00 pm
    State Capitol, Room 112
    Sacramento, California

    In California, there has been limited information about the nature and quality of the early care and education (ECE) arrangements of preschool-age children – those who are one or two years away from Kindergarten entry. A recently released report – drawing on data collected by the RAND study team from a representative sample of preschool-age children in California – will provide answers to these and other questions about preschool use and quality in California:

    • What percent of 3 and 4 year olds are in ECE programs?
    • What is the quality of those programs?
    • How do access and quality vary for children of different racial or ethnic backgrounds or children from low-income versus high-income families?

    Presenters include:

    • Arron Jiron, Program Officer, Children, Families and Communities Program, The David & Lucile Packard Foundation
    • Lynn Karoly, Senior Economist, RAND Corporation
    • Catherine Atkin, President, Preschool California
    • Giannina Perez, Senior Policy Associate, Children NOW
