Variations in enrollment and funding allocations for state pre-K programs.

PreK Enrollments
The map below illustrates combined pre-K enrollment for three and four-year-olds. Click a state to view its 2010-2011 enrollment and spending figures, compiled by the National Institute for Early Education Research.

Pre-K funding has declined in most states, with some areas reporting significant reductions. At the same time, state early education enrollment rose by nearly 31,000 last year. Nationwide, 28 percent of 4-year-olds and 4.3 percent of 3-year-olds attended a state pre-k program.

States shaded in white on the map do not have state-funded pre-K programs.
