This report explores efforts in California to generally support nontraditional students, and early care and education (ECE) nontraditional students in particular. It is recommended that institutions of higher education and local planners work together to assess the needs of nontraditional students in their ECE programs, the adequacy of existing supports on campus, and the ability of staff and faculty to make referrals to these supports. Based on findings, it is recommended that institutions and localities make an investment in targeted supports for ECE students in order to improve their success in school and beyond. Although evaluative research on the effectiveness of student support services has not been extensive, the authors reference several recent studies, and recommend further research in this area.
