The purpose of this study was to examine the differences of kindergarten Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) scores of children who participated in Anne Arundel County pre-kindergarten programs, private pre-schools, daycares and those who were in a family setting. The instrument used was the DIBELS test scores from the beginning and middle of kindergarten. There were no significant differences among the kindergarten groups. Research in this area should continue to determine if pre-kindergarten has a positive affect on kindergarten students.
