Organizing early education for improvement: Testing a new survey tool

The goal of this validation study was to determine if the newly adapted Early Ed Essentials teacher and parent surveys capture credible and useful information about the organizational conditions of ECE settings. Specifically, we examined whether the results of the surveys aligned with other existing indicators of high-quality programming for each site. Before our surveys reach the field for use broadly, we want to be confident our surveys are sensitive enough to measure aspects of early education settings to which early childhood education leaders, practitioners, and stakeholders are attuned. This report also uses the descriptions and experiences of ECE leaders, teachers, and families to offer a window into what the organizational essential supports looked like in ECE programs and the characteristics most differentiating sites with high and low Early Ed Essentials survey scores.
