Household search for and perceptions of early care and education


What do families think of different types of early care and education (ECE) such as center-based programs or care by relatives? How do families search for ECE for their young children? This fact sheet reports preliminary findings from the newly available NSECE Household Survey to provide insight into how parents perceive the ECE arrangements available to them, how and why they search for care, and when searches result in a change in arrangement.
