In 2017, we released the second State of Pre-K in Mississippi report. This new report provides updated data about the state’s public pre-K programs as well as detailed programmatic information about private licensed childcare centers serving four-year-old children. The report also offers information about the quality of pre-K programs in school districts. Lastly, we have updated and expanded the pre-K access data in each Mississippi community to account for four-year-old children who may have been served in licensed childcare centers in addition to Head Start programs and school district pre-K programs. Our first State of Public Pre-Kindergarten was published in 2015.
