Follow these easy steps to become a Learn & Grow program and start participating in Level 1 activities.

Eligibility & Joining

Call Learn & Grow at 907.265.3105, or toll free at 800.278.3723, or email [email protected]. Learn & Grow will verify your programs eligibility (Biennial child care licensed or DEED certified program) and then send a Welcome to Learn & Grow email.

Next Steps

  • A thread staff member will contact your program within five (5) business day of receiving the Welcome to Learn & Grow email and set up a time to begin working with Learn & Grow.
  • A thread professional development specialist (PDS) will guide your program through Level 1 activities and provide you resources and a pathway for completion of Level 1 and Level 2 quality activities.
  • Programs have 120 business days to complete and become verified at Level 1. There is no limit on time to obtain Level 2 recognition but a program must obtain Level 1 recognition before they receive Level 2 recognition Level.
  • A thread PDS will walk you through all the Learn & Grow steps to develop a quality improvement plan to guide you and your programs through the Level 1 and 2 quality activities.
