Health Policy Brief: The Effects Of Early Care And Education On Children’s Health

Shared via HealthAffairs.org: A growing body of research indicates that early child care and education may lead to improvements in short- and long-term health-related outcomes for children.


Key points:

  • Most children in the US attend early care and education (ECE) such as public or private preschool, child care centers, or Head Start before entering kindergarten.
  • High-quality ECE programs can promote positive educational, social-emotional, and behavioral outcomes.
  • Intensive, high-quality, model ECE programs, such as Abecedarian and the Infant Health and Development Program, have strong, lasting health benefits.
  • Investments in ECE programs, particularly those with health components, may provide lasting health benefits for participants.
  • There is a need for additional research on the effects of contemporary public and private early childhood programs on children’s health and the mechanisms underlying these effects.

“Early care and education (ECE) includes settings in which children are cared for and taught by people other than their parents or primary caregivers with whom they live. These include center-based care arrangements (for example, child care centers, preschools, and prekindergartens) and nonparental home-based arrangements, in which care is provided in the child’s or caregiver’s home (for example, care by nannies, relatives, or babysitters and in family child care homes, which are regulated settings in which a caregiver cares for multiple unrelated children in her own home). Home visiting programs, in which a visitor spends time with children while the parents are present, are not considered ECE.”

iCarol Attending the Child Welfare League of America Conference

From April 26th through the 29th, Polly McDaniel, Director of Business Development, and Rachel Wentink, Vice President, Operations, will be in Washington, DC for Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) Conference.

For nearly 100 years, CWLA has existed as a coalition of hundreds of private and public agencies that work to serve children and families who are vulnerable. Their expertise, leadership and innovation on policies, programs, and practices help improve the lives of millions of children across the United States, though their work makes a positive impact worldwide. They envision a world where every child will grow up in a safe, loving, and stable family, and focus on children and youth who may have experienced abuse, neglect, family disruption, or a range of other factors that jeopardize their safety, permanence, or well-being. CWLA also focuses on the families, caregivers, and the communities that care for and support these children.

We’re very excited to attend this conference for the first time in 2018. iCarol serves many clients who work directly in this space and use our solution to log their contacts with families and caregivers, and connect vulnerable families with resource information using the built-in service inventory that iCarol offers. So that we can continue serving them well and add more such agencies to the iCarol family, we’re eager to meet more of these organizations in person at the conference so we can continue to learn about their needs and see how iCarol might assist them improve the quality of life for children everywhere.
