Children Ages 3 and 4 Enrolled in Preschool
Early childhood education plays an important role in establishing academic foundations and future educational outcomes. Preschool enrollment for 3- and 4-year-olds is important for enabling them to enter kindergarten at the same level as their peers. The first years of a child’s schooling are very influential on their educational trajectory. Preschool enrollment is strongly associated with the educational attainment of caregivers. Those who have lower levels of educational attainment are less likely to enroll their own child in preschool.
