Findings in this presentation are drawn from the Early Head Start Child Care Policy Report, The Role of Early Head Start Programs in Addressing the Child Care Needs of Low-Income Families with Infants and Toddlers: Influences on Child Care Use and Quality (ACF, 2002c). This study is embedded in the larger Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project that followed 3001 children and families from the time families were recruited for the program (and the research) until they were 36 months of age. The overall findings may be accessed through the web site on the last slide in this presentation. See Making a Difference in the Lives of Infants and Toddlers and Their Families: The Impacts of Early Head Start (ACF, 2002a) for overall impact study results.
