This report presents data on the early childhood care and education arrangements for children in the United States from birth through the age of 5 who were not yet enrolled in kindergarten by 2019. The report also presents data on selected family activities. These data represent circumstances before the implementation of coronavirus pandemic restrictions. The data for this report come from the Early Childhood Program Participation (ECPP) Survey, administered as part of the 2019 National Household Education Surveys Program (NHES:2019). The ECPP asks detailed questions about children's participation in relative care, non relative care, and center-based care arrangements. It also asks about the main reason for choosing care; what factors were important to parents when choosing a care arrangement; the primary barriers to finding satisfactory care; what activities the family does with the child, such as reading, singing, and arts and crafts; and what the child is learning, such as counting, recognizing the letters of the alphabet, and reading. This "First Look" report presents selected descriptive information. The variables examined here are just a few of the variables that can be examined in these data; they were selected to demonstrate the range of information available from the study. The release of this report is intended to encourage more in-depth analysis of the data using more sophisticated statistical methods. [For "Early Childhood Program Participation: 2019.
