Featured Projects

  • Be Active Kids designed and evaluated an evidence-based program of developmentally appropriate physical activities to be used in North Carolina child care centers targeting children zero to five years of age. The program was formatted in a way that is easy for educators to use.
  • The Center on Secondary Education for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (CSESA) is a multi-site research and development center that will develop a school- and community-based comprehensive treatment model (CTM) for high school students with ASD and conduct an efficacy study of the impact of the CTM on multiple student outcomes and transition to post-school settings.
  • This project is designed to provide a statewide evaluation of the NC Pre-K Program. The primary research questions addressed include who is served by the NC Pre-K Program, what are the characteristics and quality of services provided, and what are the outcomes for children attending the program. Data are gathered from multiple sources including classroom observations, teacher surveys, child assessments, and monthly program reports.
  • The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning partnered with FPG Child Development Institute to jointly evaluate a summer pre-k program and two quality improvement initiatives sponsored by the Department. FPG also provided assistance with developing and piloting a quality continuum framework for early care and education programs.
