Resources for Developing Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership Agreements

This two-part research-to-practice brief covers the process of building Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships (EHS-CCP). These partners expand access to quality early childhood care and education programs for infants, toddlers, and their families, while also providing participating children and families with comprehensive health, developmental, and family support services through the partnerships. Drawing on interviews and convenings, the first part offers lessons learned from six partnerships on considerations when forming EHS-CC partnerships and developing contractual agreements among providers. The second part of the brief includes additional resources, summaries of successful partnership agreements, and expectations in the partnership agreement development process.
