Learning from the Experts: New Jersey Educators Talk about Implementing a Mixed Delivery Preschool Program. Policy Brief
Donovan, Laura Fasbach
Association for Children of New Jersey
With the state's latest preschool expansion initiative, New Jersey public schools have an opportunity to help reach thousands of additional young children who will ultimately reap the educational rewards of a high-quality preschool program. In those districts that do not already provide preschool, administrators will themselves become students as they learn creative ways to successfully deliver early childhood education for 3- and 4-year-olds. While acknowledging that there will be challenges, the author advocates that facility constraints and faculty size do not have to limit how well a district delivers preschool to its youngest students. Working with private providers can be a rewarding experience for districts, teachers and the children and families they serve. While the process of building or expanding a high-quality preschool program may seem daunting at first, educators must remember to reach out to those districts that have already paved the way. There are many resources and options available to accomplish New Jersey's preschool goals. [This policy brief was funded through a grant from Pre-K Now.]
