Characteristics of center-based early care and education programs
This fact sheet provides the first nationally representative portrait of center-based early care and education (ECE) in more than 20 years, using data from the newly available National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE). We describe ECE programs that serve children age birth to five years, not yet in kindergarten. Key characteristics include enrollment size, ages of children served, revenue sources, auspice and hours of operation. (author abstract)
