The National Prekindergarten Center (NPC) developed the Prekindergarten Policy Framework to provide local, state, and federal policymakers with research-based information on how to build high-quality programs.

The Prekindergarten Policy Framework provides:

  • A comprehensive array of topics on the dimensions of high-quality prekindergarten programs
  • Concise, current summaries of the research on prekindergarten
  • Examples of state programs including links to state prekindergarten websites
  • Bibliographies and web resources for more information on each topic

The Prekindergarten Policy Framework was originally posted online on January 31, 2004. The current version was last edited on January 17, 2006.
