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.

As states re-vision quality systems with a focus on improvement, equity, empowering flexibility, and strong engagement with providers and families, there is opportunity to ensure a cohesive system across the age continuum, including how services complement and expand into school-age youth development. Alignment of resources, collaboration among partners, funding, investment, leadership, and sharing best and promising practices all matter. In this session, state leaders from New York, Nevada, Utah, and Wisconsin shared their insights on incorporating out-of-school time (OST). Wherever your state is in supporting programs to build continuous quality improvement in OST services, there is something for you to share and learn in this session as we explore what’s next within our context.
