Studies Related to Low-Income Hispanics’ ECE Access and Utilization
This table summarizes articles, including the sample characteristics and study design, reviewed in the report, “Access to Early Care and Education for Low-Income Hispanic Children and Families: A Research Synthesis.” We reviewed studies published from 2000 to present with either Hispanic children as a focal sample, or a subsample of Hispanic children within the overall study that was examined. To locate relevant empirical literature, we used a variety of search terms, including low-income, Hispanic, Latino, immigrant, early care and education, child care, subsidies, Head Start, Pre-K, and preschool. We also reviewed published work from notable scholars on the topics of ECE access and/or the needs of Hispanic children and families. Lastly, we identified and included a number of technical reports and white papers from key federal agencies and policy organizations.
