Equity in State Systems

Equitable early childhood care and education (ECCE) services require culturally responsive teaching, implementing developmentally appropriate practices, and elevating families voices to be included ‘at the table’ where policies and practices are decided. Many states are examining and evaluating their early childhood systems through an equity framework to improve services to under-served and marginalized children and families and to reduce disparities by identifying and eliminating barriers. This resource page showcases resources from the National Center on Preschool Development Grant Birth to Five related to improving equity in state ECE policies, efforts, and systems.
