Research & Data
Mothercraft is an organization as well-known for its excellence in research as for its excellence in program delivery. Since the early 1900s, research has been an integral part of everything we do. Mothercraft's ongoing commitment to evaluation and research ensures that our programs are evidence-based and of the highest quality. Through many exciting partnerships with academic and community researchers, we have enriched knowledge development in the early years community. New learnings and best practices are transferred to professionals, communities and students through training, consultation and publication.
Behind all good research is good data. Mothercraft provides leadership through its Community Data Group in ensuring that communities collect and use good data to inform effective practice and planning. It accomplishes this primarily through knowledge exchange activities and the design and development of innovative data tools.
