In our effort to support quality services, the staff of the research department at the Children’s Forum provides access to research advances in early care and education practices and development. As an overwhelming amount of research information is available on various topics in the field, a goal of the department is to synthesize, condense, and share research findings in user-friendly formats for broader use in the field both in state and national endeavors. Currently, staff are involved with other initiatives including original research and the coordination of research and policy for services for use in statewide decision-making, increased professional education, and general awareness. As accountability in the field of early care and education increases, the staff of the research department are focused on providing up to date and relevant information to the field that is supported by evidence of various sources and degrees.
