5 things to know about parents’ knowledge of parenting and early childhood development

  1. Parents were eager for information on child development, but did not always know how to obtain this information.
  2. Parents most often sought information on parenting and child development during developmental transitions.
  3. Parents of different backgrounds and identities had more commonalities than differences when it came to their parenting knowledge and information-seeking preferences and behavior
  4. The internet was a primary source of information.
  5. Parents wanted clear, concise recommendations for parenting practices with examples of how to use them.

  • In Case You Missed It

    In June, we shared the results of a study showing that two years after completing PropelNext, nonprofits in its first cohort sustained, deepened and, in many cases, advanced their performance-management capacities. 

    An accompanying article in The Chronicle of Philanthropy by Lissette Rodriguez, EMCF Vice President and Chief Program Officer, and Danielle Scaturro, Director of PropelNext, describes how the evaluation of the first graduating class confirms the value of helping nonprofits collect and use data. 

    Read the executive summary and full report here.
