Evaluation of Georgia's Pre-K Program

In 2011, the Georgia General Assembly authorized an evaluation of Georgia’s Pre-K Program. In response to the General Assembly, DECAL commissioned national experts at the FPG Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to conduct a series of studies to measure the impact of our state’s nationally renowned Pre-K program. Reports and summaries from the first two years of the study are now available.

Overall, these findings clearly support that Georgia’s Pre-K Program enhances skills that help prepare children for Kindergarten and that as a universal program, Georgia’s Pre-K Program significantly improves school readiness skills in language, literacy, and math.
