Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute

Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute (FPG) was founded in 1966 by a small group of scientists who had a vision—to conduct research that would make a difference in children's lives, support families, and inform public policy. Since its inception FPG has recognized that every child deserves a safe, healthy, and stimulating childhood; and our work has been dedicated to making this experience a reality for all children. For more than 53 years, FPG research, implementation, technical assistance, and outreach have shaped how the nation cares for and educates children.
