costs of high-quality early care and education as part of the project, 
Assessing the Implementation and Cost of High-Quality Early Care and 
Education (ECE-ICHQ). The study received approval for a field test to 
validate and improve the psychometric properties of these measures in 
November 2019. This request is to add a measure to the approved field 
test to help further assess the associations between measures of 
implementation, cost, and quality.

DATES: Comments due within 60 days of publication. In compliance with
