Hawaii

While New Mexico features on the list due to how much they spent for Pre-K programs, Hawaii made it to this list due to their low child poverty rate, with only 14 percent placing them 8th worldwide. They also have a 48.2 percent enrollment rate for the 3- and 4-year-olds.

New York

In terms of the country’s enrollment rate, New York is among the best, reaching a 58.2 percent enrollment rate for 3- and 4-year-olds. They’re also one of the states that spent an enormous amount on improving Pre-School Education, spending over $800 million annually.

New Jersey

Finally, New Jersey made it to number one because of how much they spend on each child in the program. Statistically, they spend $3,000 per child on their program, which is perhaps the reason behind the 64.1 enrollment rate of 3- and 4-year-olds in the state.
