The Early Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (Baby FACES) is a nationally representative descriptive study of Early Head Start. Using a cross-sectional design, the second cohort of Baby FACES was fielded in the spring of 2018. Baby FACES provides a comprehensive snapshot of Early Head Start in the Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) Regions I through X with a nationally representative sample of:

  • Programs and centers;
  • Home visitors;
  • Teachers and classrooms; and
  • Enrolled families with children birth to three and pregnant women.

These data focus on the processes in the classrooms and home visits that support responsive relationships, including teacher-child relationships, staff-parent relationships, and parent-child relationships. The webinar will provide researchers and analysts with:

  • An overview of Early Head Start and Baby FACES;
  • Baby FACES 2018 methods;
  • Baby FACES 2018 highlights;
  • Questions that can be answered and considerations;
  • Information about the data files;
  • Guidance on accessing the dataset, including ICPSR’s standard application process and the submission of the signed data use agreement.
