Our Agenda

We are driven by the belief that early access to high-quality education sets children on a trajectory to success.

We are driven by the belief that early access to high-quality education sets children on a trajectory to success. That’s why our research focuses on revealing the key factors of early education practice and policy that improve outcomes for children, families, and communities. We are committed to helping the field understand what makes children succeed today, and throughout their adult lives.

Our research has proven that a high-quality early education makes a difference all the way into adult years. And for 50 years, we have worked side-by-side with programs around the world to ensure every teacher is supported and every child can thrive. This conviction for equity is at the center of our research, which continues to lead the national discourse on early childhood education.
