What We Do

what we do

Growing numbers of stakeholders are understanding the importance of getting a good start on learning, as well as the interdependence of early learning and other critical areas of functioning. Thus, new schools or charter schools, mental health organizations, and private foundations among others are increasingly incorporating early childhood programming, or incorporating child development principles into their existing programming. The Marsico Institute serves as a consultant to these initiatives locally and nationally, helping to insure that they are developmentally appropriate, based on good science, and keenly focused on issues of access and equity. We provide research and evaluation services for both large and small scale programs. We also offer a variety of professional development options that can be adapted to meet the needs of your staff. If you would like to discuss your technical assistance needs with us, please contact our Assistant Director of Research carrie.germeroth@du.edu
