Welcome to the Ensuring eXperiences for Children's Early Learning Success (EXCELS) Lab

The EXCELS Research Team's work is about fostering better understandings of the early social and learning successes of young children growing up in urban poverty. The existence of seeming intractable achievement gaps between children growing up in poverty and their more affluent peers represents, arguably, the most important educational concern of our time. In our most recent intervention research, we seek to support stronger connections between home and school.
