Exploring early care and education policy for young children of incarcerated parents

Resource Type: Other
Author(s): Dichter, Harriet; Ruprecht, Karen; Tomlin, Angela M.
Date Issued: March, 2020
Description: Children of incarcerated parents may face an increased risk for developmental and behavioral problems. Early care and education can play a positive role in addressing these risks and providing positive support. However, these children are largely hidden when it comes to formal early care and education policy and program initiatives. This article will focus on the impacts of parental incarceration on young children, consider trends and opportunities in early care and education policy that can help address the needs of children of incarcerated parents, and provide suggestions for future policy strategies.
