Delivering Preschool Inside and Outside the “Education Tent”
Public preschool is being organized and delivered through a combination of private providers and public schools; several states have opted to build on the patchwork of existing programs, allowing private and community‐based providers as well as schools to deliver pre‐kindergarten. Policymakers in states like New York, New Jersey, Georgia, and Florida have looked for ways to combine, through a mixed public‐private system, the best of both worlds: the universal access, stable funding, and educational standards of public schools, and the flexibility, diversity, and responsiveness to families of existing early childhood programs. However, weaving together these different strands of the early childhood world is a complicated task, requiring that those who shape and implement policy pay careful attention to the details that can strengthen the patchwork on which they rely.
