The Early Education Pilot for Two Year Old Children: Age Five Followup - This is a study from the United Kingdom concluding that for children who attended preschool when they were two, there is no evidence that they had overall better outcomes at five. The exception is children whose preschools were high-quality settings. There is also no evidence that attending preschool at two increased the likelihood of those children attending preschool at three or four, except for children from black and ethnic minority backgrounds who were more likely to attend preschool if they attended preschool at age two. (Ruth Maisey, Svetlana Speight and Vicky Marsh, (UK) Department of Education, March 2013)...
