What is Mixed Delivery?
Quality early learning experiences are an essential element to preparing children to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. This impact is life-long — children who participate in high-quality early childhood care and education (ECCE) programs are more likely to finish college, get high-paying jobs, and be healthier later in life. VECF’s Mixed Delivery program provides publicly funded ECCE services in licensed (non-faith-based), private ECCE settings for eligible children. It funds full-day, year-round ECCE services for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, meeting growing demand for publicly funded ECCE at private sites that meet the varied needs and preferences of families.
