Description

We measured the rate at which children from birth to kindergarten-age exit from 21 Educare schools. These are highly resourced Early Head Start/Head Start programs targeting children at risk, especially children from poor families. About 10% of the children have a disability. Children with a disability tended to stay in the program longer, especially when enrolled in Early Head Start.
