Approaches to providing comprehensive services in Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships


In this resource, we first share information about the nature of the comprehensive services these six partnerships provided, how they were implemented, and about the reactions of staff and of families to extending the reach of the child care programs to provide comprehensive services. We then describe the challenges these six partnerships faced concerning the provision of comprehensive services and how staff sought to address them. In an attempt to help other partnerships learn from the experiences of these six EHS-CCP, we then provide a tool aimed at helping other partnerships think through their decisions about how child care partners can structure the provision of comprehensive services in a way that addresses the Head Start Program Performance Standards while taking into account the unique needs and resources of their programs. While these six partnerships cannot possibly encompass all the experiences of partnerships with comprehensive services the group strongly agreed that sharing the experiences of this specific set of partnerships could be helpful to other partnership grantee staff and child care partners. (author abstract)
