A report released by the National Institute for Early Education Research (released on May 11, 2015), “The State of Preschool 2014,” finds that Rhode Island is one of only five states to meet all ten standards, or benchmarks, for the youngest learners. This marks the 5th consecutive year that Rhode Island has met all 10 standards.

The Institute benchmarks include having comprehensive early learning standards, significant degree and training requirements for prekindergarten teachers and assistants, strong requirements for class sizes and staff-to-child ratios, and strong requirements for screenings and referrals, meals, and monitoring.
