Why Early Intel?

We connect quality to data.

A high quality early childhood program can help close the achievement gap. But how do you know if you are high quality? How do your staff know if they are being effective? And how can you find measures that are easy to use and understand? At Early Intel, we help Head Start programs find usable, clear improvement metrics where everyone is on the same page and your children and program thrive.

What We Do

Early Intel helps early childhood managers improve program quality and strengthen their impact. We bring a real world, on the ground approach with proven strategies. We do this through a mix of improvement science, innovative solutions and training to build your program’s capacity.



Our Quality Improvement Summit features practical, quality improvement strategies and solutions that can be implemented by programs of all sizes.

Q.I. Network

Building a capacity around data and quality improvement requires expertise, leadership and discipline.  Our consulting helps managers execute the strategies and tactics that advance child and family outcomes.

Continuous improvement is better than delayed perfection.
