For over 60 years, Children’s Institute has been focused on addressing children’s social and emotional health.

Children's Institute is recognized for our research on the health and well-being of young children and families. We conduct a wide range of research studies to develop and promote effective prevention and early intervention programs, led by an experienced team with disciplines in school psychology, public health, quantitive research evaluation, economics, classroom quality, teacher self-efficacy, and human development specializing in early childhood.

Our expertise is in research issues impacting schools, children, caregivers, families, and physical and mental health service providers to ensure that:

  • Children's problems are identified sooner
  • Children will have access to effective interventions
  • Accurate and current data are provided to policymakers who make decisions for children
