The Early Head Start–Child Care Partnership (EHS-CCP) program, launched in 2014, is helping support child care programs that meet the Early Head Start performance standards but are designed to meet local needs and circumstances. EHS-CCP grantees partner with local center-based and family child care programs and leverage community resources to expand access to high-quality early care and learning for low-income infants and toddlers.

On January 16, please join BPC, in collaboration with the Educare Learning Network (ELN) and First Five Years Fund, to learn more about how EHS-CCP is impacting families and child care providers across the country. This public event will highlight the release of BPC’s new report on the EHS-CCP and ELN’s 2018 report, Lessons from the Evaluation of Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships Across the Educare Network.

The event will be webcast.
