Evaluation of the Child Care Expulsion Prevention Program

Principal Investigator:
John Carlson

The Child Care Expulsion Prevention (CCEP) initiative provides consultants and training to assist child care providers and parents with challenging behavior exhibited by children in daycare and preschool settings. This statewide evaluation assesses child, parent, and provider outcomes as well as the implementation and fidelity of the program to the principles outlined in the CCEP model. A comparison group of families referred for challenging behavior who live in regions not served by the CCEP program are also being examined to assess the impact of the program.
