Final Report: Exploring Associations Between Jewish Early Care, Education and Engagement

This project examined whether Jewish early care and education (ECE) enhances Jewish engagement among families raising Jewish children, particularly among those who are initially less engaged. The research team examined the relationship between Jewish ECE and Jewish engagement among families with young children in a systematic and rigorous fashion, using multiple data collection approaches. The project focused specifically on three areas of investigation:

1.- Defining and measuring Jewish engagement among families with young, Jewish children;

2.- Identifying and describing promising Jewish engagement practices for families with young, Jewish children, both within Jewish ECE settings and outside of them; and

3.- Examining child care choices and levels of Jewish engagement among families with young, Jewish children over time.
