Ready, Set, Register: Your Direct Path to Quality


Event Description

These weekly Community of Learner sessions will engage the participants in the process of increasing their program quality so that the children in their care have the best start in life. Through exploration of the documents, tools and materials required to reach a 1 star SUTQ rating, participants will walk away with the knowledge necessary to implement these resources and achieve their initial star rating. These weekly sessions are for childcare center administrators and owners only. Participants will be required to attend all sessions and complete a final project to receive full credit for attendance. During the final session, programs will register for their initial star rating.
