ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood

Since 1991, ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood (formerly known as Head Start’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood) has highlighted cutting edge research on low-income families with young children.

The conference supports dialogue between researchers, policymakers, and program and administrative staff. This active dialogue strengthens education for young children, brings the latest information to those establishing national policies for low-income families, and contributes to the development of a meaningful research agenda in the early care and education field.
