Attending preschool could have a lasting academic benefit for children.

Researchers at the University of London found that 10-year-olds who attended preschool did better in elementary grade levels than those who did not attend.

It seems all children can reap the benefits, regardless of gender or family income.

Children who attended high-quality preschools made even more progress.

The key factor to look for in a preschool is a highly trained staff.
