Subject:RE: Impact of early childhood education programs on child maltreatment

Hi Rich, There are two Cochrane reviews focusing on broader, but related outcomes: van Urk FC, Brown TW, Waller R, Mayo-Wilson E. Centre-based day care for children younger than five years of age in high-income countries. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2014, Issue 9. Art. No.: CD010544. DOI: 10.1002/14651858.CD010544.pub2. Brown TW, van Urk FC, Waller R, Mayo-Wilson E. Centre-based day care for children younger than five years of age in low- and middle-income countries. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2014, Issue 9. Art. No.: CD010543. DOI: 10.1002/14651858.CD010543.pub2.

Several partners In Minnesota are considering a proposal for state funding to provide scholarships to quality child care programs for children who are in or at risk of being in the child protection system. We would like to identify any evidence that quality child care settings have a positive impact on child development for children experiencing maltreatment, such as on social/emotional development or other measurable milestones. This proposal is building in part on a pilot program in Hennepin County that is showing some early positive results from these scholarships. One is that the availability of child care slots reduces the time children spend in shelter care, in part because it makes placements available where foster parents work outside the home. Thanks for any help you can provide.
