There are presently 18,000 children across the state who have been identified as being in need of a preschool space but for whom no School Readiness space is available. About one-half (8,700) of these children live in Priority School Districts. At the current rate of progress, it will be 2030 before all children in Priority School Districts have access to a School Readiness space and 2049 before all children in the state do.
