Comprehensive Child Development Program (CCDP), 1990-1996
United States. Department of Health and Human Services, 2007
United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Head Start Bureau. COMPREHENSIVE CHILD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (CCDP), 1990-1996 [Computer file]. ICPSR04711-v1. Rockville, MD: Westat, Inc. [producer], 1998. Ann Arbor, MI: Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research [distributor]

The Comprehensive Child Development Program (CCDP) was implemented as a result of the Comprehensive Child Development Act, originally enacted by Congress in 1988 in an effort to increase the educational potential of young children from low-income families and to decrease the likelihood that they would be caught in the cycle of poverty. The CCDP was designed to provide intensive, comprehensive, integrated, and continuous support services for children from low-income families from birth, or before, through their entrance into elementary school, to enhance their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. Additionally, the CCDP was designed to offer support services for parents and other household family members to enhance their life management skills and economic self-sufficiency. More than 4,000 families from 24 community-based program sites across the nation were randomly selected to participate in either experimental or control groups in the CCDP study.

Cross system collaboration: A fresh look at working together: Increasing access to quality early learning: State examples
United States. Office of Child Care, August, 2011
Washington, DC: U.S. Office of Child Care.

The Office of Child Care (OCC) requested this report to capture the spirit and themes that emerged from this meeting and participant discussions. Based on information shared at the meeting and further research by the author, emerging topics being discussed by States and communities seeking to build collaborative services include: 1. Aligning quality across programs using the highest standards and putting funding together creatively to minimize complexities for parents, providers, and teachers. 2. Ensuring that eligibility and payment rules allow for creative collaboration that improves quality and continuity. 3. Developing a continuum of comprehensive services taking into account the whole family and linked to where children are. 4. Expanding and building 0-5 expertise and ownership among stakeholders. 5. Working across sectors to continually improve the quality of both the collaboration and the services delivered. By no means are these ideas and examples shared in this report meant to be exhaustive; many other approaches exist in States and communities. The report concludes by describing some additional ideas meeting participants suggested for moving forward in collaboration and next steps in progress at the Federal level. (author abstract)
