Early Childhood Cost Modeling

Early childhood cost models allow stakeholders to understand the true costs of an early childhood system.  Cost estimation analyses take into account a range of factors that affect system costs, including:

Costs of child care at different quality levels and settings
Local cost drivers, such as salaries and operational costs
Characteristics of children participating in the system
Administrative and infrastructure costs
Implementation factors, such as doseage and fidelity to program design

Cost estimation projects also map current funding across a range of programs and domains, including child care, family supports and home visiting programs, and health and mental health care.
