State Partnerships

Let's Start Something Together!

For more than 20 years, HighScope’s researchers have partnered with states to evaluate their state-funded early childhood initiatives for evidence of educational effectiveness.

Over time, the number and scope of state-funded early childhood programs has grown. With few exceptions, state governments have invested in preschool programs aimed at serving at-risk children. Many states have or are instituting universal preschool and full-preschool. In addition to traditional, classroom-based preschool programs, states are also funding community-based initiatives with a birth–K focus.
