Duration: 2002-2005

The Head Start Child Care (HSCC) evaluation study was created to provide frontline supports to child care programs that serve a large number of at-risk children and families. The initiative included four resource teams that operated out of Alex Taylor School and provided support to five centre-based child cares, one full day child care, and one day home agency that supervised 27 day homes.

The evaluation study examined the use of the four resource teams as a support strategy within the different child care settings.
