Professional Development for Head Start and ECE Organizations
Acorn Evaluation partners with organizations nationwide serving families and children aged 0-5 to "skill up" their staff and strengthen their infrastructure in all things data.
We collaborate with hundreds of Head Start and Early Head Start grantees to help them become model programs consistent with the Head Start Program Performance Standards, which emphasize evidence-based implementation of continuous quality improvement.
We provide training and education with our data camps, online training courses, and a data literacy credential; training and technical assistance; program evaluation services; custom analytics; and senior management consulting. If you are looking for help, support, and a friendly partner to strengthen your program and your people - we're here for you!

What Our Partners Say
"Partnering with Acorn has been invaluable in expanding our understanding of using the tools at hand to dive deep into our program's data and inform our decision-making. Our team was anxious at the beginning of this journey; however, Acorn staff professionalism, knowledge, patience, and expertise helped us expand our data capacity and work across program sites and different content areas to collect, manage, and use data efficiently, consistently, and accurately.
We can't say enough good things about Acorn. We made the right decision!"
