What Can CCDF Learn from the Research on Children's Health and Safety in Child Care?

Banghart, Patti L.; Kreader, J. Lee

A major goal of CCDF is to provide low-income children with access to high-quality care that supports their health and safety. Research underscores the role of health and safety in child care in supporting children's physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development, all of which contribute to their school readiness. Regulations vary widely across states, and more needs to be learned about how regulations, enforcement of regulations, and supports could best improve child outcomes.
