Since 2005, researchers at FPG have led the Educare Learning Network implementation study of the Educare model. Key results from four school years—fall 2007 to spring 2011—are presented in this report. Evaluation data are demonstrating positive results in preparing at-risk children from birth to five for later academic achievement and also show that more years of Educare attendance are associated with better school readiness and vocabulary skills.
