Research and Evaluation


We believe that in order for transformation to occur in the settings where children and youth grow, learn, and play, we must understand what works and why.

The Whole Child Connection is committed to contributing to that understanding through:

  • Evaluation of child development services and supports
  • Original action-oriented research on social and emotional programs, practices, and initiatives
  • Support for partners on how to collect and understand data in order to promote continuous improvement
