Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In recent years, our nation has become extremely interested in early childhood education (Jorde, 1988). Education of preschoolers has been singled out by President Bush and the State Governors' Commission during their Education Summit in 1989. This is evident by the declaration that was made during this summit that stated "by the year 2000, all children in America will start school ready to learn" (Copple, 1990 p. 5). Youngster's readiness to learn can be harmed because they do not have accessibility to high quality and developmentally appropriate preschool programs. Changes in our society have caused the supply of preschools to be inadequate (Shanker, 1987).
