About Us

Child Care & Early Education Research Connections, launched in 2004, promotes high quality research in child care and early education to support policy making. Our vision is for children to receive quality care and have rich learning experiences while their families receive support so that they can work. This website includes research and data resources for researchers, policy makers, practitioners, and others.

Research Connections is a partnership between ICF; the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research at the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research; and the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) at the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The contents of this website are the sole responsibility of ICF and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research and do not necessarily represent the views of OPRE, ACF, or HHS.
