Early childhood education and immigrant families

Thursday, September 02nd, 2010 | Author: Smart Start

The Urban Institute has a new paper that looks at how states and communities are improving access to high quality early childhood programs for immigrant families. It’s titled, “Early Education Programs and Children of Immigrants: Learning Each Other’s Language.”

Excerpted from the abstract:

“Children from immigrant families are the fastest growing group of children in the United States. High-quality child care and early education opportunities will be critical to these children’s success in school and in life. Yet, the early experiences of children in immigrant families are as diverse and varied as immigrant families themselves. While many immigrant families face numerous barriers to accessing high-quality child care and early education for their young children, these barriers are not insurmountable. “
