This paper is about White Center before the initiative started. It tells about some of the kindergartners, their families, and the children's school readiness. It describes early learning services and quality of the services. The information comes from interviews with staff and parents and a survey of service providers in 2007. Mathematica researchers also looked at child care settings and surveyed early education workers. They tested children and asked teachers to rate children's abilities. Information also comes from surveys of parents.
