Evaluation of Indiana's Early Education Matching Grant program: 2014-15


In 2014, Indiana initiated public prekindergarten services for eligible four-year-old children. Early Education Matching Grant (EEMG) Program funds were awarded to 30 eligible high quality early education programs throughout Indiana. Twenty-nine of those programs provided services to an average of 421 children from low-income families over the 2014/15 school year. As part of this initial prekindergarten effort, Indiana contracted with Indiana University's Early Childhood Center (ECC) to conduct an evaluation of this first year effort. The focus of the evaluation was to look at children's gains in learning, family engagement, and classroom quality. (author abstract)
