High-Quality Early Education

Families with infants and toddlers need high-quality, affordable early care and education programs that support child development, promote parents’ engagement in children’s learning, and allow parents to work or go to school.

  • Child Care Assistance. Low-income families with infants and toddlers should get child care assistance to afford safe, stable, high-quality child care that promotes children’s development and parents’ education, training, and work.
  • Early Head Start. Vulnerable infants, toddlers, pregnant women, and families should have access to comprehensive early childhood services through Early Head Start.
  • Early Intervention. Infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities should be identified and receive early intervention services in a timely manner.
