Wilder Research
The Saint Paul Public Schools' Project Early Kindergarten program aims to improve the school readiness of Saint Paul children. The program began in 10 Saint Paul schools in fall 2005, and expanded to community child care settings a year later. Project Early Kindergarten (PEK) has since become the model for pre-kindergarten programs district-wide and is now titled the Saint Paul Public Schools' Pre-Kindergarten Program. This report comes at the conclusion of the fifth year of PEK. Following an initial planning year (2004-05), PEK has served children through the school component for four years (2005-06 to 2008-09) and through the community child care component for three years (2006-07 to 2008-09). This report summarizes the program's implementation and outcomes results to date, through the 2008-09 school year. Appendices include: (1) School-based PEK; and (2) Community-based PEK. (Contains 70 figures.) [For the executive summary, see ED511619.]
