WORKSHOP: Learning from Practice: Research Highlights from the Newark Trust for Education & ParentChild+ Collaboration 2019 - 2020

Presented by: Ronald Chaluisan (Executive Director) & Pritha Gopalan, Ph.D. (Director of Research and Evaluation)


This is the PowerPoint presentation used during the workshop that captures research highlights from the Trust's collaboration with ParentChild+.
This is a qualitative study of parent/caregiver participation in the Newark ParentChild+ Early Learning program, conducted in Spring 2019, that highlights three levels of integration of the program into parent-child and extended family routines.
This infographic summarizes the results of the Parent Survey conducted by Newark Trust for Education in Fall 2020, reporting high levels of parental implementation, and high levels of children's learning and socio-emotional development.
A third party analysis of positive parenting and child socio-emotional development assessments, conducted over four points over the course of a full cycle of implementation (from Fall/Winter 2018 - Fall 2019). Results show consistent growth of positive parenting and child socio-emotional skills for the majority of participants.
