March 27, 2014 — Thousands more young Utah children will have access to preschool after the Utah Legislature expanded UPSTART, a computer-based, in-home preschool program.

Legislators approved a five-year extension for UPSTART and expanded the program’s funding to include about 5,000 children annually — more than three times UPSTART’s previous annual headcount of about 1,500 children. The additional funding and extension starts late summer to kick off the 2014-15 preschool year.
