Child Welfare and Early Childhood: Cross-Systems Collaboration to Improve Outcomes for Young Children and Their Families: Head Start and Child Care for Children in Child Welfare Systems
The advantages of Head Start participation for young children and their parents has long been demonstrated. High quality child care supports brain development, advances school readiness, and develops social and emotional skills that benefit children through their lives. Case workers often encounter barriers to enrollment and retention in Head Start and high quality child care, for children in foster care. What are those barriers? What can be done to alleviate those barriers? What is being done at the state level to increase enrollment? How can federal policy support greater access to these ECE programs for foster children? How can the workforce in both of these programs be trained and supported to respond better to children who may present with trauma symptoms and challenging behavior?

Presenters:
Susan Savage, Director of Research at the Child Care Resource Center (CCRC)
Tommy Sheridan, Deputy Director, National Head Start Association
Andria Zaverl, Research Manager at Child Care Resource Center (CCRC)
