July - September 2020
Sponsored by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE), in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), the Child Care and Early Education Policy Research Consortium (CCEEPRC) brings together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to discuss what we are learning from research that can help inform policy decisions for ACF, States, Territories, localities, and grantees and to consider the next steps in child care and early education research.
The CCEEPRC 2020 Virtual Event Series was held July – September 2020. All slides, as well as event summaries and recordings, are available on this page.
The CCEEPRC Annual Meeting differs from other research-focused meetings. This meeting is the collective effort of the Consortium – a rich network of stakeholders working in a variety of professional spaces who are committed to strengthening the bridges between child care and early education research and policies. The CCEEPRC 2020 virtual events build on continuing discussions, while also trying to foster new connections and inquiries. To this end, sessions bring together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners engaged in policy-related Child Care and Head Start research to share findings/innovations, discuss challenges and solutions, and generally make connections across projects to maximize what we can learn from OPRE-funded research.
While the CCEEPRC Annual Meetings are typically closed to Consortium members, the CCEEPRC 2020 Virtual Event Series is open to the broader community of stakeholders.
