Only 6,000 children attended the program in its first year, with roughly 20,000 children enrolled by 2003-2004.
Next school year, officials expect to serve 45,600-90 percent of eligible students.
In the fiscal 2015 budget, the state has allocated about $614.5 million, or just under $13,500 per child, for the Abbott preschool programs.
Wolock attributes the slow start to a lack of facilities, staffing and standards."We didn't have any set of standards for programs to follow.
People didn't know what to do," Wolock says.
According to district statistics from fall 2010 to spring 2012, students in Camden preschools improved by about 20 percent in literacy and math from when they started preschool to when they left for kindergarten.
Unfortunately, that progress is often overshadowed by dramatically low state test scores in later years, with the early advantage often eroding.
"Preschool is a bright spot in many Abbott districts, particularly the larger ones - Jersey City, Newark, Paterson, and certainly Camden," Wolock said.
