A new study confirms what educators have long been able to detect when students first enter preschool or kindergarten — children who have had more access to books, learning materials and rich conversations during their early years at home have cognitive skills that can contribute to academic success throughout elementary school.

For the study, the researchers conducted home visits with more than 2,200 families enrolled in the Early Head Start Research Evaluation Project when the children were 14 months, 2 years, 3 years, in pre-K and then in fifth grade. Children were assessed on vocabulary, letter and word identification, and math problem-solving in pre-K, and on vocabulary, reading, math, and general cognitive abilities in fifth grade.
