Improving Access to Prekindergarten for Children of Immigrants: Enrollment Strategies

Abstract

Children of immigrants can benefit from attending prekindergarten, though they enroll less, on average, than children with US-born parents. This fact sheet focuses on strategies for helping immigrant families overcome language, documentation, and other logistical barriers when enrolling their children in prekindergarten programs. It is one of three factsheets, all drawn from Supporting Immigrant Families Access to Prekindergarten. This detailed report draws on interviews conducted with more than 40 prekindergarten directors and staff, directors of early childhood education programs, and other specialists to present strategies for improving prekindergarten enrollment among immigrant families and English Language Learners.
