Desired Results for Children and Families

Research shows that children who attend high quality programs are more successful in school, have lower drop out rates, and are better readers. The California Department of Education (CDE), Early Learning and Care Division (ELCD), has established the Desired Results System to improve program quality in early care and education programs across the state.
