Fifteen percent of 4-year-olds and 10 percent of 3-year-olds are enrolled in California’s state-funded preschool. The state also has 24,652 children under the age of three enrolled in Early Head Start. However, currently less than half of low-income children in the state have access to publicly funded preschool. Additionally, the average annual cost of center-based infant care in the state is $12,068. Along with increasing access, advocates and state leaders have been on a mission to increase the quality of pre-K programs offered in the state. In addition, support for early childhood education across the state has been made loud and clear, as supporters were successful in urging Gov. Jerry Brown to restore cuts and include additional investments for early learning in his 2014-2015 state budget.
