Unlike countries such as the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Italy, the United States does not have a free, universal, and comprehensive preschool system. Early childhood education has been a neglected priority to the detriment of the country's youngest citizens. After all, studies have shown that preschool and early childhood education programs have both short-term and long-term positive effects on a child's physical, emotional, and intellectual development. This paper argues that preschool programs can have a lasting impact on a child's life. Given the importance of this early foundation, the federal government should follow the European example and provide funding for preschool programs for the country's children.

From the Paper:

"The research focused on children who had problems with locomotor and object control skills. The results of their study showed that children who were enrolled in a "compensatory preschool program" performed better in locomotor skills activities such as jumping, skipping, running, sliding, leaping, galloping and hopping. Furthermore, the children who participated in the preschool program also performed better in object control skills activities like kicking, throwing, catching, bouncing and striking (Hoffman)."
