Meghan Broadstone, a research scientist and early childhood systems expert, brings extensive experience in early childhood and out-of-school time policies, research project management, survey design, qualitative research, and formative and summative evaluation.   

In her co-leadership of EDC’s Child Care Collaboration Study, Broadstone explores the role that collaboration can play in improving child-care programs. Her previous research on child-care and Head Start partnerships included several large, multi-year studies (the Partnership Impact Project, Pre-K Impact Project, and Child Care Quality Project). In addition, she led a study for the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care on alignment of afterschool quality initiatives. She presented the recommendations from this study to lawmakers at the Massachusetts State House

Broadstone’s current evaluation work includes several National Science Foundation-funded projects dedicated to broadening underrepresented minority participation in out-of-school time STEM programs. Previous evaluation work includes leading the evaluations of the National Center on Program Management and Fiscal Operations and the National Center on Health.

She holds a BA from Oberlin College and a PhD in Developmental Psychology from Boston College.
