National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER)

The National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) helps State Education Agencies (SEAs) to lead sustained improvements in early learning opportunities and outcomes. They work in partnership with SEAs, state and local early childhood leaders, and other federal and national technical assistance (TA) providers to promote innovation and accountability. 

Alliance-Funded Support for State Advocacy

NIEER is producing an online guide for state leaders who are working to expand high-quality preschool in mixed delivery settings.

NIEER is also building on the Cost of Preschool Quality and Revenue Communications Toolkit that provides advocates and state leaders with readily adaptable tools to effectively communicate the costs of the state infrastructure needed to implement, monitor, and improve the quality of early education programs.

NIEER will also provide technical assistance to the Alliance’s state partners and the National Association of Early Childhood Specialists in State Agencies.
