Early Education Programs

If your program is interested in:

  • continuous quality improvement
  • helping educators advance their education and learn the valuable skills to support positive adult-child interactions
  • having supports and resources to reduce turnover in your program and pay your staff a living wage
  • learning more about how to use the learning environment as a second or third teacher

Learn & Grow may be the solution for you!

What is Learn & Grow?

Learn & Grow is a voluntary system that provides the framework and necessary supports for early childhood education programs to actively participate in continuous quality improvement activities. Supports include:

  • Development of a quality improvement plan
  • Coaching, technical assistance, and specialized training
  • Quality Recognition Awards (financial support)
  • Marketing and communication materials

Programs set their own timelines for achieving the activities. As programs meet a set of quality standards they are publicly recognized for their accomplishments at each level of quality. Learn more about the Learn & Grow framework.
