“The Economic Benefits of High-Quality Early-Childhood Programs: What Makes the Difference?” is available from the Committee for Economic Development.

Well-trained teachers, small class sizes, support for parents, and a “bridge” into the elementary grades are common characteristics found in some of the nation’s most successful early-childhood education programs, concludes a report.

The report—released by the New York City-based Committee for Economic Development—identifies the key features needed to design a “high-quality” early-childhood-education program. Its conclusions are based on the work done by the High/Scope Perry Preschool program, the Carolina Abecedarian Project, and the Chicago Child-Parent Centers.
