FOCUS: SCHOOL READINESS
Children prepared to adapt to the school environment when they enter kindergarten are more likely to meet academic and social demands of the classroom and succeed in school and beyond. The DEEP lab focuses on ways to measure and improve children’s readiness for school, particularly for children from low-income backgrounds.
SPOTLIGHT ON MEASUREMENT
We apply state of the art measurement tools and techniques to “get inside” young children’s school and home environments.
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION INTERVENTIONS FOR LOW-INCOME CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
To promote low-income children’s school readiness, there is a large and growing movement to invest in high quality education and care of young children before they enter school. Our work at the DEEP Lab explores the effectiveness of early childhood education interventions and why programs may or may not produce positive results for low-income children and families.
FROM RESEARCH TO POLICY AND PRACTICE
The DEEP lab conducts rigorous research to inform early childhood policy decisions and practice.
