Abstract:
Early childhood is a time of great opportunity. State policymakers recognize this and some are trying to use resources strategically to promote healthy development and school readiness in young children. This report, based on findings from NCCP's Improving the Odds for Young Children project, highlights key findings from NCCP's database of state policy choices that provides a unique picture of early childhood policies across the states. The report summarizes emerging patterns and can be used to stimulate a dialogue, both within the states and nationally, about how to make more strategic, coherent investments in young children.
