NPC Research worked closely with RFHF project managers and the project coordinator to develop and implement an effective evaluation of the project. All participants completed a pre and post survey to evaluate what they learned and how they changed their practices. Due to the nature of Healthy Start, family support workers were able to report the parent education sessions they provided and track the early literacy development of the child over time. Librarians reported only the parent education sessions they provided. NPC conducted a focus group each year to learn what participants learned providing parent education sessions, how their training changed their daily practices, and their plans for continuing to use their training to provide early literacy education.
