The era of educational accountability has drawn attention to a need for the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) in today's classrooms. The existence of a research-to-practice gap is well established in the field of early childhood education (ECE), and significant barriers to the use of EBPs by practitioners have been documented through research. A number of free, easily accessible, high-quality websites are available for independent use by practitioners that help promote EBPs; however, practitioners are often unaware of these sites. This article explores the research about EBPs in ECE and provides information on selected federally funded websites that can be used to increase practitioners' knowledge of EBPs for their work with young children.
