Based on estimates from the Early Childhood Program Participation Survey of 2012, there are more than 13 million children under the age of 3 in the United States, about half of whom are in regular non-parental care arrangements each week. In 2014, an average of 415,000 of these children received federally-funded child care assistance through the Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG) program, according to the Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (see footnote 2). While there is considerable variation across states, nationwide infants and toddlers comprise about 40 percent of children under the age of six receiving CCDBG subsidies. (Author Abstract)
