ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood 2022 (NRCEC 2022)

ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood (NRCEC) 2022 will be held virtually from June 27-29.

The goals of NRCEC 2022 are to

  • identify and disseminate research relevant to young children (birth to 8 years) and their families;
  • encourage collaboration among researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to build the evidence base for policy and practice; and
  • foster discussion of research priorities, gaps, and needs.

NRCEC 2022 will present the latest research surrounding Head Start, Early Head Start, child care, home visiting, child welfare, special education, pre-kindergarten, early elementary, and other early childhood programs.

Attendees at the conference are expected to include academic and professional researchers, early childhood program administrators and practitioners, and federal, state, and local policymakers.
