Access to early care and education for disadvantaged families: Do levels of access reflect states' child care subsidy policies?


To our knowledge, no studies have asked which combinations of subsidy policies are associated with better access to ECE for low-income families (relative to higher-income families), from either a demand perspective (i.e., the perspective of the family) or a supply perspective (i.e., the availability of high-quality ECE providers serving subsidized children). The fact that subsidy funds are limited makes it essential to understand the benefits and consequences of different combinations of subsidy policies as they relate to parents' access to high-quality ECE.
