The National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) conducted a landscape evaluation of early childhood programs in Indiana (IN) between the spring of 2021 and the summer of 2022. The evaluation focused on understanding program components, quality, and children’s learning and development across a variety of programs in the state. Commissioned by Early Learning Indiana (ELI), with generous support from Lilly Endowment Inc., this study aims to provide Indiana programs and policymakers with research-based information on the quality of early childhood programs, and the learning and development status of young children birth to five in the state. This Research Report discusses differences observed in program quality by program type, Paths to Quality (PTQ) star level, and geographic region from March 2021 through July 2022. Throughout this period, programs continued to experience interruptions or quarantines due to the COVID-19 pandemic (including the Omicron and Delta variants of COVID-19). (author abstract)
