Banghart, Patti; Cook, Maya; Bamdad, Tiffany; Carlson, Julianna; Lloyd, Chrishana M.
Partnerships between Early Head Start (EHS)/Head Start and child care programs have existed for many years. In 2014, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) granted funds to establish Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships (EHS-CCPs) with the goal of expanding access to high-quality early learning programs to meet the needs of low-income working families with infants and toddlers. ACF has funded 275 grantee partnerships across all states and in all 10 ACF regions. This annotated bibliography highlights the existing literature available on EHS/Head Start child care program partnerships. It is intended for early care and education (ECE) researchers, policymakers, and practitioners interested in using best practices and research to inform their work. The authors also draw attention to forthcoming research on EHS-CCPs that received federal funding in 2014, including the National Study of Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships and several local EHS-CCP evaluations currently underway.
