Beginning Education: Early Childcare at Home (BEECH)


Beginning Education: Early Childcare at Home (BEECH) is a two-year project that is studying the effectiveness of a web-based professional development course for home child care providers towards improving cognitive, socio-emotional, language, literacy, and math skills of infants, toddlers and preschoolers in care. One-hundred eighty registered and licensed child care providers in Harris, Fort Bend and Brazoria counties in Texas will participate in the study, which will include more than one thousand children 5 years and younger.  The study is funded by the Texas Early Learning Council through support by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009.
