Network Goals

To positively impact the lives of children in preschool through Grade 3 by investigating the implementation of early learning policies and programs; identifying malleable factors associated with early achievement; and providing information, tools and products that policymakers and practitioners can use to build effective early learning systems and programs.

Build

Build a cohesive network to enhance the impact of individual efforts across research and assessment teams.

Collaborate

Collaborate across research and assessment teams to address challenges and validate findings.

Advance

Advance research in the field and identify areas in need of additional study.

Educate

Educate early childhood practitioners on research-proven practices and tools to implement in programs across the country.

Disseminate

Disseminate findings to fellow researchers, early childhood stakeholders, policymakers and the public to inform policy and practice.

Impact

Make a positive impact on the lives of children, especially those from low-income households or disadvantaged backgrounds.

Mission

To improve the academic success of children, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, by identifying research-proven policies and practices that narrow the achievement gap and ensure early learning success is maintained as children transition from preschool to elementary school and beyond.

Components of the Network

The Early Learning Network is funded by the Institute of Education Sciences. Research and assessment teams are located at universities and research centers across the country and will conduct research over a five-year period.
