Improving parent choice in early learning

During the pandemic, there have been bipartisan calls for dramatically increased public funding for EEC. As that money is being invested, more needs to be done to make it easier for families to exercise true choice-in which they have affordable, accessible, and high-quality options and the information they need to make the right choice for their child. This report outlines the alternatives families have with EEC and the supports already in place to help them navigate those options. It then looks at how states influence the universe of available options. It concludes with recommendations for state and federal actions to support and improve family choice. (author abstract)
