Research Practice Advocacy

Engaging Research + Practice + Advocacy

The Children’s Campus of Kansas City is a partnership of researchers, educators, and advocates working to narrow the gap between research and practice in real-world settings to help benefit children and families in our community.

Our co-location fosters innovation and unique opportunities to explore early education research and challenges. Together, we’re maximizing impact during the most important years of a child’s life.

Our agency partners work in collaboration to advance early childhood education and what holds the greatest promise for changing the trajectories for the most disadvantaged children.

Join us in helping our community for generations to come. Explore the different ways we’re working together below.
