Understanding and responding to the pandemic's impacts on preschool education: What can we learn from last spring?

Share
Description:
The COVID-19 pandemic presents tremendous challenges for preschool education. Most of the nation's 3- to 5-year-olds attending preschool programs had their 2019-20 school year cut short as stay at home orders were issued and in-person classroom attendance was shut down. What were the consequences for young children? The National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) conducted a nationwide survey of parents of children ages three to five to find out. The survey provides information that can be used to develop policies and plans for the remainder of this summer and for the 2020-21 school year. Key issues include how much preschool classroom time was lost and how well programs provided remote education to replace lost in-person experiences. (author abstract)
