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.

Child care is not a nice-to have, it’s a must-have. Child care should be convenient, affordable and available in every neighborhood.
