What Data Can Tell Us About School-Age Child Care and CCDF
On Thursday, March 29, 2018 the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) hosted a webinar introducing a first ever series of national and state/territory data profiles with information about school-age children served through the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). The profiles present a detailed picture of how federal investments and state policies can support the needs of school-age children, who represent nearly half of all children served through CCDF subsidies.
The profiles are available through an interactive database with links to additional national and state resources related to school-age child care and include: statistics on the school-age population (5 through 12 years) serviced through CCDF subsidies; CCDF state/territory policies related to school-age child care; contact information for national and state organizations that support school-age programs.
The State School-Age Data Profiles Database can be found in the NCASE Resource Library, here.
