The vast majority of kindergarten teachers in California—88 percent—say they spend extra time in their classrooms working on basic skills with children who did not attend preschool, according to a poll of 521 kindergarten teachers in the state.

Released by Preschool California, an Oakland-based advocacy organization, the poll also shows that 95 percent of those surveyed said that children who attend an early-childhood education program are better prepared for kindergarten—with skills such as counting, knowing colors, paying attention, and following instructions—than those who didn't attend preschool. The poll—which has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points—was conducted by Peter D. Hart Research Associates, a Washington-based survey research firm.
