Investing in the early years: The costs and benefits of investing in early childhood in New Hampshire

Recognizing the importance of the first five years of life, states have been expanding their investments in an array of early childhood interventions designed to address early-life stressors and other factors that can compromise healthy child development. Drawing on an extensive body of program evaluation and economic evaluation research, this report documents the ongoing need for early childhood investments in the state of New Hampshire, particularly for at-risk children; the evidence base for three strategies for promoting child development from birth to kindergarten entry--early home visiting, high-quality child care, and high-quality preschool; and the estimated economic returns in New Hampshire under various scenarios for expanding investments in such programs.
