Child Care & Early Education Research Connections is a partnership of the National Center for Children in Poverty and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan. Launched in 2004, Research Connections promotes high-quality research in child care and early education and the use of that research in policy making. Our vision is that children are well cared for and have rich learning experiences, and their families are supported and able to work. Through the Research Connections website, we offer research and data resources for researchers, policy makers, practitioners, and others.
