COVID-19 Surveys

PEER developed the COVID-19 Family Needs Assessment Survey and the parallel COVID-19 Teacher/Staff Needs Assessment Survey in April 2020, early in the COVID-19 pandemic. PEER created these tools in collaboration with one of our research partners, Maritime Odyssey Preschool in Norwalk, Connecticut, which was looking for a systematic way to learn about the needs of their students, families, and teachers during the public health crisis and resulting program closures.

IES Briefs

These briefs resulted from PEER's initial research projects, which focus on understanding the experiences of preschool children in the southwest region of Connecticut and the factors that are associated with kindergarten readiness and kindergarten performance. This research was

funded by grant R305H140142 from the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences (IES).
