High-quality early-childhood education can have significant positive impact on the lives of children. But those considering Pay For Success financing as a means to develop such programs are faced with answering some tough questions right at the start.
How do we decide on appropriate outcomes and how will we evaluate them? What will repayment terms be? What are the data capabilities my team needs?
To help answer some of these questions Urban Institute has created The Pay for Success Early Childhood Education Toolkit. It provides a “roadmap for stakeholders to scale high-quality, evidence-based early childhood education (ECE) programs in their communities.” The toolkit is a great resource for jurisdictions in the preliminary stages of considering pay for success financing and those already in the middle of the process.
