Improve Outcomes for Indiana Children

Join the Indiana Early Childhood Education Program Quality Study

Study Details

A child’s foundation for learning develops rapidly in the first five years. In fact, the first five years of a child’s life are the most important. That’s why Early Learning Indiana is collaborating with the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) at Rutgers University on an Indiana early childhood education program quality initiative, and we invite you to participate.

Participants will help identify quality in all early learning settings and contribute to enhanced learning outcomes for Hoosier children. The time commitment is low, and the benefits are high.
