This project was made possible by support from the SEED Consortium of federal agencies to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Family and Child Well-being Research Network (Grant 1U101 HD 37558-01). The SEED Consortium (Science and the Ecology of Early Development) involves federal agencies working together to lay the groundwork for and fund research on issues pertaining to the development of young children, and especially how specific environments (ecologies) can best suport early development. The SEED Consortium agencies that sponsored the present project include the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation of the Administration for Children and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, including the Head Start Bureau and the Child Care Bureau.
