Early care and education: State and territory governance structures

Share
Description:
Federal, State, and Territory governments have engaged in numerous efforts to create a more cohesive early care and education system for children and families. This has resulted in States and Territories creating different governance structures to meet the unique needs of their populations. This document provides an overview of the governance structure in each State and Territory. It highlights the administering agencies for child care subsidy, licensing, quality initiatives, Head Start collaboration, state or territory-funded prekindergarten, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) services (Part B, Section 619 and Part C), and home visiting programs through the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program.
