Who We Are and What We Do

Since 2014, our network has implemented five key strategies to ensure that more children enter Kindergarten ready to succeed. Those strategies are:

  1. Unifying expectations for high quality teaching and early learning (Birth to Five Standards)
  2. Supporting teachers and providers to reach expectations (Professional Development)
  3. Measuring and recognizing progress (CLASS & GOLD Assessments)
  4. Funding providers that serve children well (Performance Profile Ratings)
  5. Providing clear information and high quality choices to families (Coordinated Information & Enrollment Campaign)
