Costs Per Child for Early Childhood Education and Care Comparing Head Start, CCDF Child Care, and Prekindergarten/Preschool Programs (2003/2004) - This paper calculates the actual, per-child costs of Head Start (including Early Head Start), child care provided under the Child Care and Development Fund and pre-kindergarten/ preschool programs.
