Research programs in the Atkinson Centre include basic research on developmental processes (Astington, Chen, and Jenkins) and applied research on young learners with special needs (Martinussen) and on early childhood practices such as grade retention and instructional grouping.

Our research also includes a number of large-scale community-based projects in Ontario. These include participation in case studies of the District of Timiskaming's Best Start (Volpe), which is working to integrate Aboriginal, Francophone, and Anglophone early years centres.

Collaborative research with the City of Toronto has informed local practices in assessing the quality of child care programs (Perlman).

The Toronto First Duty (Corter, Bertrand, Janmohamed & Pelletier) and the Peel Family Literacy community research projects (Pelletier) have received national attention over the past year and are influencing national policy discussions as well as local practices; they are also contributing to the scholarly literature.
