Costs and benefits of investing in universal preschool

Investing in high‐quality preschool education was supported by a cost–benefit analysis conducted by ISOTIS researcher Thomas van Huizen (Utrecht University) and colleagues.

This study is described in the paper "The Costs and Benefits of Investing in Universal Preschool: Evidence From a Spanish Reform", published in the recent issue of the Child Development journal.

It provides a cost–benefit analysis of expanding access to universal preschool education, focusing on a Spanish reform that lowered the age of eligibility for publicly provided universal preschool from age 4 to age 3.
