Early Education Essentials: Illustrations of Strong Organizational Practices in Programs Poised for Improvement

A result of collaboration between the Ounce of Prevention Fund and the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research, the Early Education Essentials measurement system is now available nationwide for use in early childhood school- and community-based settings. This new research provides valuable qualitative descriptions of strong organizational environments and how they empowered leaders, teachers, and families to aspire to and realize higher-quality practices and better outcomes for young children.
