The purpose of this study is to research the benefits of Universal Pre-Kindergarten and answer the question: What reading and writing development can be observed in a Pre-Kindergarten classroom? The research for this study was done through observation and assessment of a group of students enrolled in the Universal Pre-Kindergarten program through a local suburban school district. This particular group of Universal Pre-Kindergarten students attended the program through a community-based organization near the local school district; although the program is housed in a different location, it encompassed the same curriculum as other Universal Pre-Kindergarten classrooms in the district.
