Defining and measuring access to child care and early education with families in mind
The authors propose an expansion of the definition of access in the field of child care and early education. The definition discussed goes beyond supply and demand and brings in the concept of the preferences of families. This fact sheet also discusses the ways in which family-centered access can be measured and mapped in a community.
