CE Course Description

High-quality early care and education can be more effectively achieved when community partners work together to link data to support programs and experiences. This continuing education course, developed using information from Child Trends, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Education, discusses how to use linked and administrative data in early childhood (EC) programs to improve services for young children and families. Benefits and examples of data use are presented as well as challenges and strategies to overcome them.

CE Course Objectives

5. Identify challenges programs might face when trying to link their own data or link with other agencies, as well as strategies ECE programs have used to overcome these challenges.
