As part of Abt's collaboration with the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families, this brief provides a national snapshot of early care and education (ECE) participation among low-income Hispanic households.

Researchers use publicly available data from the 2012 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) to describe the percentage of young children in low-income Hispanic households who are in non-parental care on a regular basis (more than 5 hours per week), and the different types of settings they experience. ECE is broadly defined in this analysis to include the full range of home- and center- based arrangements children experience when not in the care of their parents.
