Résumé du programme de recherche

Evaluation of Early Childhood Development and Education programs in Bangladesh. (Grants from Plan International Bangladesh 2003-2004. Grants from Save the Children US in Bangladesh from 2005-2008). My research entails evaluating the quality of preschool education for children from 3 to 5 years of age in rural Bangladesh, and parenting for mothers of under-3 children. One study is accepted by the Early Childhood Research Quarterly (in press). We have evaluated the quality of the preschool programs with the ECERS-R and also the child outcomes in terms of School Readiness, Verbal and Nonverbal Reasoning, and Social play. We helped Plan implement a new improved program and evaluated it in comparison to the regular program, while also teaching them how to conduct action research while it was being newly impelemented. Now we are doing a follow up on the children as they proceed through primary school.
