With increased attention on the broken child care market and the urgent need for a more effective and equitable approach to how states fund access to quality child care, this webinar will discuss what a cost estimation model is, the process of developing a model, and how a model can be used to inform child care policy, such as subsidy rates and grants or contracts. In particular this discussion will focus on cost modeling in relationship to family child care providers; family child care is a cornerstone of the early care and education system yet is a very different service approach than center or school based settings. Join this webinar to explore how cost modeling and family child care comes together, the benefits to this modeling approach and impact on understanding family child care operations.
