Applying Implementation Science in Early Childhood Programs and Systems

Halle, T., Metz, A., & Martinez-Beck, I.

Improving outcomes for young children and their families may start with choosing evidence-based curricula, interventions, and practices—but it doesn't end there. To ensure sustained changes to early childhood programs and systems, interventions must be implemented effectively and consistently over time, which isn't an easy or straightforward task. This important book is the first research volume on applying implementation science—an evidence-based framework for bridging the research-to-practice gap—within early childhood programs and systems. With contributions from more than 25 early childhood researchers, this essential reference will help ensure that interventions are not only implemented effectively, but also scaled up and sustained so they help as many children as possible.
