Migrant and Seasonal Head Start and Child Care Partnerships

Full Description: 

This report was the result of a collaborative study by the Migrant and Seasonal Head Start (MSHS) Collaboration Office and the Quality in Linking Together: Early Education Partnerships (QUILT) project located at EDC. The purpose of the study was threefold: 1) to examine the extent and nature of collaborative efforts between MSHS and state child care systems; 2) to assess the extent to which migrant and seasonal farmworker families were knowledgeable about the child care system and child care services; and 3) to assess the ability of migrant and seasonal families to access child care services for their children ages birth through school-age.
