Improving the Access and Availability of Early Care for Latino Families
Quality early care and education programs can help erase the school readiness achievement gap for Latino kids. Our newest brief identifies gaps in the care that low-income Hispanic families need for their young kids and what’s available, particularly when it comes to center-based providers’ hours of availability.
