Take time to review the multimedia piece “Five Sectors in the Early Childhood Field,” paying close attention to the monitoring, funding, and quality segments, and consider what you have learned about the incredible breadth of the field as well as information on program effectiveness, standards, and monitoring as presented in your learning resources.
