Research studies demonstrate that high-quality early childhood education programs positively impact a child’s academic success for years to come. Yet many early education programs nationwide struggle with implementing high-quality programming. A sole focus on teachers and instruction in early childhood education is insufficient for quality improvement. Our research advances the implementation and improvement of high-quality programs by providing the field with evidence-based strategies and initiatives.
