This research brief prepared by First 5 LA provides a snapshot of the children and families participating in the LAUP center-based preschool programs, with information about their ethnicity, primary language, household income, children’s literacy and math skills, family composition, and parent’s country of origin and employment. Mathematica collected the data as part of the First 5 LA/LAUP Universal Preschool Child Outcomes Study (UPCOS). A full report on the preschool study will be available in the near future.
