Educare is built on a foundation of research and evaluation. Our model is based on the latest research on child development and early education, and we continuously evaluate our program to ensure we are achieving our goal of preparing low-income children and their families for success.
We partner with leading research institutions to perform ongoing assessments and evaluate outcomes at each school. We share what we learn so that educators at all Educare Schools benefit from promising practices and access to timely research. Educare also shares our findings with policymakers to spark new investments in early education nationwide.
Our findings show that Educare works. Children who attend Educare for two or more years arrive at kindergarten on par with their peers, regardless of socio-economic standing.
Our National Research Agenda for Early Learning () aims to catalyze new research on best practices in early education that improve the lives of young children and families in poverty.
