In Search of Research and Evaluation Findings about Licensing in Early Care and Education

 
Please share your research and evaluation reports about licensing in early care and education (ECE)! Send materials, along with your contact information, to TRLECE@acf.hhs.gov by January 31, 2020.
 
The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) recently posted a request for research and evaluation reports about licensing in ECE to inform the project, The Role of Licensing in Early Care and Education (TRLECE) project. TRLECE will identify and address gaps in knowledge about how key features of the licensing system in ECE are related to ECE quality and outcomes for children, families, and key stakeholders (e.g., providers, licensing agencies).
 
One of the early project activities is to refine a conceptual framework and synthesize information regarding what is currently known about licensing research, policies, and administrative practices. The project team will review a broad range of information and is searching for relevant licensing materials. We invite you to share your relevant work with us. Examples include:
 
  • Evaluation reports of ECE licensing regulations or practices;
  • Reports that summarize or analyze ECE licensing data at the local, regional, or state/territory level;
  • Research reports, including manuscripts under review;
  • National reports of licensing data across states or territories;
  • Conceptual frameworks or models of ECE licensing;
  • Logic models that include ECE licensing; and
  • Descriptions of outcomes or benefits of the ECE licensing system.
We will assume materials you share are publicly available, unless you specify otherwise. Please include URL information for publicly available reports, if applicable.
 
Please send all materials, along with your contact information, via email to TRLECE@acf.hhs.gov by January 31, 2020.
 
We also encourage you to share this email with colleagues who may have relevant work to share. To learn more about this request, visit the request for research and evaluation reports page.
