OPRE’s child and family development work includes research and evaluation projects primarily concerned with child care and child welfare. This portfolio additionally examines the culturally diverse experiences of children and families served by ACF programs.
Research focuses on six major areas, including:
- Cross-Cutting Early Childhood Research
- Child Care
- Head Start and Early Head Start
- Child Welfare
- Human Trafficking
- Cultural Diversity
OPRE publishes the Child and Family Development Research report to describe the research in these areas sponsored by OPRE during the previous fiscal year.
