Early learning fact sheet: Funding safe, healthy, quality child care


In Rhode Island, children enrolled in Early Head Start, Head Start, and RI Pre-K are much more likely to be enrolled in a high-quality program than children in the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). Across the U.S., early care and education programs vary markedly in quality, and many families cannot find or afford high-quality care. Inadequate public funding levels, low staff education and compensation, and inconsistent monitoring and support for quality improvement are key barriers to improving access to quality child care.
