The 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.

Today they are one of the nation's oldest and largest multidisciplinary centers devoted to the study of young children and their families. About 300 researchers, implementation and technical assistance specialists, staff, and students work on over 80 projects related to developmental disabilities; early care and education; physical and social health; professional development, technical assistance, and implementation science; public policy and evaluation; and racial, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, and socioeconomic diversity.


The Child Care Center serves approximately 80 children from infancy to age 5 and their families in a high-quality, nationally accredited, inclusive early care and education program.  For more information about the FPG Child Care Center, please contact or call 919.966.5098.


Information Technology Services provides full technical support to the FPG community including desktop support, network storage, data security, data backup and archiving, and web development.


Outreach helps the FPG community fulfill its mission of cultivating and sharing the knowledge necessary to enhance child development and family well-being. The Outreach team creates resources that are accessible and relevant to a diverse range of audiences and helps develop and implement communication strategies to meet Institute and project goals.
