Early learning guidebook for Indiana Schools


This Early Learning Guidebook for Indiana Schools is a statewide resource tool to develop, expand, and sustain high-quality early learning programs within public and nonpublic schools by providing information to support young children’s development and learning, as well as how to fund such programs. Once considered a strategy to support working parents with child care needs, most states now view access to high-quality preschool programs as both a critical long-term economic investment in the future workforce and a precursor to school success. Drawing on the best available research and using Indiana-specific data, the benefit-cost analysis indicates that a high-quality, state-funded early childhood education program would yield anticipated benefits of $3.83 to $4 per dollar invested, according to an Indiana University research team.
