There are also rich opportunities to engage in research within the A. Sophie Rogers School for Early Learning. The school supports research focused on early learning, families and the community, and child health and development including physical activity and nutrition.
Research projects span an array of disciplines, epistemologies, and methodologies. Projects range from studying how teachers support children’s alphabet learning to the importance of parents’ aspirations for their children to the role of nutrition and physical activity in healthy development.
