The early learning landscape


This chapter summarizes information on who the children from 0-5 years are (e.g., demographics, native language), where they are cared for (e.g., home care, center day care, licensed and licensed-exempt family care), and what public resources are available for families and children from 0-5 years for child care, preschool, and transitional kindergarten. It also summarizes sources and amounts of funding, governance at the state and local levels, eligibility requirements, participation rates, unmet needs, coordination and fragmentation, and the pros and cons of various governance and delivery systems.
