A study of Minnesota private preschools using quality early learning indicators
The research question addressed in this project was, do Minnesota private preschools provide a quality education for our young children? The motivation for this study was the noticeable discrepancies seen by the author between public school early learning programs and those in the private sector. Key influences were the experiences of the author as an early childhood administrator in both the public and private sector. Quality indicators for early learning programs are described in this study. A survey concerning program standards was distributed to all private preschools in the state of Minnesota. The result of this survey indicated that quality standards within the private preschool vary greatly. The author connects the survey to changes that could be made to close the quality gap between private and public preschool programs.
