National Pre-K and Early Learning Evaluation Center

 Policymakers at both the federal and state levels are calling for increased investments in public pre-k programs, along with the requirement to evaluate these services. In response to these needs, FPG has established the National Pre-K and Early Learning Evaluation Center which is designed to help states design, implement, and evaluate pre-k and early learning programs.

The National Pre-K and Early Learning Evaluation Center provides:

  • Assistance with designing and implementing pre-k and early learning programs
  • Evaluation services for states and federally funded pre-k and early learning programs
  • Dissemination of evaluation findings to policymakers and other stakeholder groups.
If you are interested in further information about any of these services, please contact PreKEvalCenter@unc.edu
