In contrast to many other nations, America does not have an integrated, comprehensive system of early care and education for its youngest citizens. The Center’s work in this area acknowledges the lack of such a system. It examines all the elements, including governance and finance, that need to be addressed in the creation of an early care and education system and includes strategies for outreach and dissemination of information for those attempting to develop a more coherent approach to service delivery for young children and families.
Current Systems/Governance Projects:
- Policy Matters: ECE Planning In The Real World
- Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Alignment of Standards, Curriculum, and Assessment
- Early Childhood Workforce and Models of Individual Professional Certification
