Impact of Pre-K Expansion on Child Care for Low-Income Families

Resource Type: Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects
Principal Investigator(s): Schilder, Diane;
Date Issued: 2007
Description: This study is designed to address questions about the association between prekindergarten (preK) expansion and the supply and quality of child care for low-income families. We are conducting a longitudinal investigation to identify changes in the supply of child care and in the quality of care for low-income working families across different types of providers and for different ages of children. Research questions include: (1) How do changes in state preK funding relate to the overall supply of child care and in the supply of child care for the children of low-income families? How does this change over time differ based on whether the county predominantly delivers preK through public schools or through child care and Head Start providers?; (2) How does the configuration of the child care market change over time as preK programs expand?; and (3) How is expansion of preK programs related to the quality of child care? How do expanded preK programs affect the quality of child care available to low-income families?
