Early Childhood Policy Briefs

Policy briefs provide succinct information that typically includes compilations of empirical research presented in a narrative format. Designed for multiple audiences, policy briefs often contain the rationale and recommendations for a specific policy stance on an issue of salience related to young children and families. Moreover, if you are interested in publications that will provide persuasive evidence for advocacy purposes or policy making decisions, we invite you to explore these resources.
