Consumer Education and Parental Choice in Early Care and Education

The purpose of this project is to understand how parents find and use information to make informed choices regarding their children’s enrollment in early care and education programs, with a particular focus on parents’ use of information from states’ and territories’ consumer education efforts. This project also aims to examine the breadth of states’ and territories’ consumer education efforts and dissemination strategies employed by states and territories to identify innovative efforts, as well as to evaluate whether states’ and territories’ consumer education strategies inform parents’ early care and education choices.
