The National P-3 Map identifies states, school districts, communities, and organizations across the United States that are working to create a well-aligned, coherent, high-quality continuum of learning from birth through third grade. Because there exists a wide variety of approaches to "doing P-3," the Map provides a visual way to understand the focus areas of each approach.

To explore existing P-3 approaches, click on the state you wish to know more about.

If your work, or that of others, is not included here, please take a moment to complete this questionnaire about your efforts.
