Abstract: The National Household Education Survey (NHES) is an ongoing project of the National Center for Education Statistics. The Early Childhood Program Participation (ECPP) interviewed parents of 14,064 children from birth through third grade. They were asked about their children's participation in care or education provided by relatives, nonrelatives, Head Start programs, and center-based programs. This survey also collected information on early school experiences for school-age children, home literacy activities, health and disability status, and parent and family characteristics.
