Impact Findings from the Head Start CARES Demonstration: National Evaluation of Three Approaches to Improving Preschoolers’ Social and Emotional Competence, Executive Summary - Because low-income children face risks to their social-emotional development, the national Head Start CARES project evaluated the effects of three approaches: the Incredible Years Teacher Training Program, Preschool PATHS and Tools of the Mind-Play. All three changed teachers' practice. Two showed consistent positive impacts, PATHS and The Incredible Years. Though there were no impacts on kindergarten outcomes, findings show evidence-based approaches can improve preschoolers social-emotional competence when administered at scale.
