Preparing low-income Latino children for kindergarten and beyond: How children in Miami's publicly-funded preschool programs fare

Description:
To address questions regarding the influence of early care and education programs on Latino children's early academic development, we analyzed data from the Miami School Readiness Project (MSRP) in Miami-Dade County, Florida, which has a large Latino population. The MSRP represents a unique, large administrative data source that has followed, over time, children who participated in various types of publicly-funded early care and education programs at age four. Two of these programs are the focus of this brief: public-school- based pre-K, and center-based programs that accepted child care subsidies. These programs, referred to hereafter as public school pre-K and center-based care, respectively, were offered in a variety of settings and by a variety of sponsors. In this brief, we examine how well low-income Latino children who attended these two program types were prepared for kindergarten and how they performed academically by the time they were in third grade.
