State Policies and Practices Supporting Child Care for Infants and Toddlers

Full Description: 

In this EDC Child Care Collaboration Study research brief, the authors present findings that highlight the relative importance of policies, practices, and regulations that state Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) administrators use in their efforts to increase the supply and quality of early care and education for children from birth through age three, with an emphasis on children from low-income families. The findings are drawn from qualitative analyses of CCDF state plans and other extant data, as well as based on an online national survey completed by CCDF administrators. EDC is conducting the Child Care Collaboration Study with funding from the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, Administration for Children and Families under the Child Care Research Partnership grant program.
