Transforming the Financing of Early Care and Education
A CONSENSUS REPORT OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES OF SCIENCES, ENGINEERING AND MEDICINE
This report from the Board on Children, Youth, and Families concludes that transforming the financing structure for early care and education to meet the needs of all children and families will require greater coordination among financing mechanisms, as well as significant mobilization of financing and other resources across the public and private sectors. The report offers specific recommendations for making early childhood education and care more affordable for families, linking funding to high quality-standards, and financing the transformation of the education and care workforce.
ECFC member and partners providing funding for the report included: Alliance for Early Success, Buffet Early Childhood Fund, Foundation for Child Development, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Heising-Simons Foundation, the Kresge Foundation, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
