Early Learning Network Forum executive summary: Equitable and effective early learning opportunities: Research, practice and policy considerations


On December 13, 2022, the Early Learning Network Forum, “Equitable and Effective Early Learning Opportunities: Research, Practice and Considerations,” was hosted in partnership with the Institute of Education Sciences. More than 100 stakeholders joined network members for the daylong virtual event, including practitioners, policymakers, researchers, state and federal partners, and others invested in early childhood education from across the country. Participants heard the latest ELN findings and engaged in dialogue to determine how the network’s contributions to the early childhood knowledge base can be translated and applied to improve practice and policy with the goal to narrow opportunity gaps and ensure early learning success of children from prekindergarten (pre-K) to third grade, especially those from marginalized groups. Based on what the network research suggested, as well as their own insights and experiences, participants offered potential actions to strengthen early childhood education systems; inform practice, policy and research focused on improving outcomes for all students; and ultimately, to help move the field forward.
