This study explorers the effects of a self-regulation curriculum has on these skills in preschoolers attending a Head Start and public preschool combined program. Using a quantitative pre-experimental design, children’s self-regulation skills were assessed at year start and year end using the Preschool Self-Regulation Assessment. Statistical analysis of the pre and post test scores indicate all children made significant gains in self-regulation skills and that these gains were most noticeable for boys and for Head Start children. Implications of these findings for practicing teachers and administrators are discussed
