Working with Programs to Foster Sustainable Change
We partner with program leaders, practitioners, and stakeholders to guide and support their adoption of new and innovative practices that improve service quality. The ECC staff works diligently to advance effective policy change and best practice by informing and educating our constituents. We have leveraged our knowledge of implementation science to support school districts statewide interested in increasing their inclusive preschool services.
We successfully partnered with numerous early childhood programs throughout the state during our evaluation of the Early Education Matching Grant (EEMG), involvement with First Steps agencies and their providers who work directly with the children and their families, and while supporting local communities, such as Wabash and Monroe counties, to increase their quality capacity.
We presented research findings and best practices recommendations on an array of early childhood topics and served as advisors to local and state partners.
Our staff participates on the Early Learning Advisory Committee (ELAC) and support the state's First Steps Governor's Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC).
How can we share our expertise to inform and guide your change initiatives?
