In a report released today, Bellwether Education, a leading education research and consulting firm, named Acelero Learning one of five exemplar Head Start programs across the country. Authors Ashley LiBetti and Sara Mead analyzed the entire Head Start landscape and ultimately narrowed their focus to Head Start programs that have evaluative evidence of positive effects on children's learning outcomes. They spent nearly three years digging into the detailed design and practices of the Acelero Learning program, trying to understand what led to its success with children.
We at Shine Early Learning (SEL) are proud of the approaches and innovations that Acelero Learning has put into action across all its programs. All Acelero Learning centers practice a common program model and leverage its corresponding tools and content, which we also utilize in the work SEL does in collaboration with Head Start partner programs across the country.
