|Time:||8:30 AM - 10:30 AM|
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.
