APA is part of a team - led by Third Sector Intelligence and NIEER - that is designing the comprehensive evaluation of the Seattle Preschool Program.
In late 2015/early 2016, APA convened a Seattle family child care (FCC) provider advisory committee to design a pilot study for FCC participation in the Seattle Preschool Program. The pilot will assess how FCC providers can be fully integrated into the Seattle Preschool Program in a a way that achieves, in a cost-effective manner, the same quality standards as other types of providers. The advisory committee produced a set of recommendations that have been submitted to the Seattle Department of Early Education and Learning. The FCC landscape memo that was developed to inform the recommendations can be viewed here. and the recommendations can be viewed here.
