2018 QRIS National Meeting

404. Looking at Access from Multiple Perspectives

Date: Wednesday July 18, 2018
Time: 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Location: Conference 4

Access to early care and education is a multi-dimensional construct that means more than just the availability and affordability of programs. From a family’s perspective, access also needs to address whether options meet parents’ needs, support children’s development, and can be located without undue burden. State examples will be shared to highlight how access can be monitored and evaluated with multiple indicators and by creating different profiles. Participants will share ideas and examples for how to analyze access in a feasible and reliable way. 

Presenters: Jennifer Barshack and Nara Topp, Minnesota Department of Human Services; Carlise King, Child Trends; Bentley Ponder, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning
