Megan Pratt coordinates the Oregon Child Care Research Partnership, which serves two primary functions: 1) to conduct research related to child care and education policy of interest to local and state partners; and 2) to convene a virtual organization that brings together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners for shared learning and networking around issues of child care and education in the state.

Dr. Pratt’s work focuses on understanding early learning at local, state, and national levels, with an emphasis on evaluating potential variation in experiences across communities and populations. She investigates child care and early learning from the perspectives of the child, family, and workforce. Her work also examines how both formal (eg child care) and informal community-based (eg libraries) settings support families and caregivers of young children.
