Quality care for low-income infants and toddlers: A study of community strategies
This study identifies and categorizes partnership agreements between child care providers and Early Head Start programs. These partnerships, which primarily address the use of subsidies, are presented as exemplary efforts to improve the quality and supply of infant-toddler care available to low-income families. Additionally, this report provides an overview of broader initiatives that include components that increase the availability of infant and toddler care for low-income families. The findings and discussion in this article are based on the first year of a multi-year study on collaborative and community-based initiatives to improve low-income families' access to quality infant and toddler care.
