This working paper by NIEER Director Steve Barnett and NIEER Associate Director of Research Milagros Nores estimates participation in early childhood education programs by child’s age, program setting, family income level, and child’s household language. By combining data from the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey (CPS), the National Household Education Survey (NHES), and information collected by NIEER for the State of Preschool Yearbook, their estimates provide a detailed look at primary and secondary care arrangements for children ages 2 to 4 in 2010.
