A Transformative Vision for the Authentic Inclusion of Family Child Care in Mixed-Delivery PreK Systems
Melvin, S. A., Bromer, J., Iruka, I. U., Hallam, R., & Hustedt, J.
From the executive summary: "Including family child care (FCC) educators in mixed-delivery PreK systems is essential to achieving equity for children, families, educators, and communities. Intentionally (re)designing PreK systems to be more inclusive, equitable, and just can pave the way for transformative change across early care and education (ECE) systems that can result in enhanced outcomes for young children and families. In this document, we offer a set of guiding principles and a parallel conceptual framework that together highlight: (1) the potential strengths and assets that FCC programs can contribute to enhancing PreK children’s developmental outcomes; and (2) the areas of PreK implementation that need to be intentionally designed to successfully engage and support FCC educators as a key component of a mixed-delivery PreK system."
