Addressing equitable access to early care & education in Jefferson Parish.

In partnership with Start Early, the Jefferson Ready Start Network created a report that uses qualitative and quantitative data about the early learning landscape with a focus on existing availability, quality, and accessibility of early care and education in Jefferson Parish.

In partnership with Advancing Communities for Equity, Jefferson Ready Start Network recently released a report that assesses Latino families’ participation in the early learning sector, including awareness of publicly funded early care and education opportunities and barriers to access.

This research will be used to better understand the lack of participation in the early learning sector by Latino families and to develop a path forward to increase equitable access.
