The Texas Policy Lab is supporting state and local agencies in Texas focused on improving early childhood development outcomes, especially in the first three years of life. Our partnerships span many systems impacting young children, including child care, parenting programs and health and development interventions. We have supported the design, implementation and evaluation of a school district’s parenting programs, analyzed and visualized child care data to inform policy design, and integrated data silos to measure the impact of statewide programs.
