‘Liable’ to is used to denote negative predictions or undesirable outcomes; ‘likely’ is used for happy or positive forecasts. Since the whole sentence means to point to out that the program is cost effective, a positive feature, we must use ‘likely’ rather than ‘liable’. Remove A, B and D. Between C and E, C brings out the intended meaning neatly

(A) been proven to be less liable
(B) proved themselves not as liable
(C) proved to be less likely
(D) proven to be less liable
(E) proven themselves not as likely

Split: liable and likely
Idiom: Less likely to do something
Between C and E. It lacks "as" in the later.

I think , no one has proved the fact for the students that they are less likely to need remedial programs later
So , passive form is not necessary
Students proved the point and hence a conclusion can be drawn. This is only expressed it we write the sentence like -

Since children who undergo preschool education have proved to be less likely to need remedial programs later, preschool education programs are demonstrably cost effective.

Generally speaking, ‘proved’ and ‘proven’ are the same when used as past participles, except that we can use ‘proved’ as a past tense verb, while not 'proven'. However, ‘proven’ is more acceptable than ‘proved’ as an adjective before a noun such as ‘proven capacity’ or ‘proven MS skills’ etc. For use as a verb, such as in him ‘has proved’, ‘proved’ is more often the preferred form.
