We’re excited to share with you our summer quarterly Early Care and Education e-update.

Child with flowerThis edition of the e-update features a handful of recently archived webinars and LegisBriefs from the ECE project staff and other NCSL colleagues.

The newsletter also highlights the sixth cohort of NCSL’s Early Learning Fellows Program. This selected group of individuals has already had one face-to-face meeting, two webinars and are gearing up for their final face-to-face meeting mid-September in Denver.   

Quarterly we include one article featuring the answer to a recently received information request. Have you ever heard of the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit? Find out what the Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit is and similar tax credits in other states in this edition of the e-update.

To round out the e-update we’ve included a summary of some notable legislation that has been enacted in 2017. (A full report of all enacted 2017 legislation will be available early in 2018.) You’ll also get an overview of some federal updates and resources and as always an offering of recently released early childhood articles, briefs and reports.

The Early Care and Education e-update is created quarterly as an information service for state legislators and legislative staff. If you would like to subscribe and receive this newsletter please email Alison May. 

NCSL’s Early Care and Education team are here for you on policy topics such as brain science and research, child care, prekindergarten and school readiness, early childhood workforce and much more.

Alison May is a staff coordinator in NCSL’s Children and Families program.
