How much of children's early care and education participation in 2012 was publicly funded?
In the U.S. in 2012, public funding of early care and education (ECE) could come from a variety of programs and levels of government (federal, state, local). This snapshot uses household reports to estimate percentages of children younger than 60 months who enrolled in that year in two types of publicly funded ECE: center-based and paid home-based care. Using household reports allows us to document income and age-related differences in children's participation in publicly funded and non-publicly funded care, as well as differences by parental employment status.
