Outreach

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 outreach strategies to support prekindergarten enrollment for children of immigrants — specifically those for identifying immigrant families, promoting programs, and sustaining outreach. It is one of three factsheets, all summarizing findings 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.
