Small Beginnings Family Child Care is excited to announce that we are participating in Quality Start, a quality rating and improvement system (QRIS), in San Bernardino County!
What is Quality Start?
Quality Start is a comprehensive, countywide initiative. It's designed to help local early care and education professionals provide the highest quality early learning experience possible. Quality Start San Bernardino County is committed to supporting early childhood educators with resources and information to encourage continuous quality improvement in early learning programs. By participating in Quality Start San Bernardino, my program will benefit from the following:
Professional coaching and development opportunities
Customized plan to guide quality improvement effort
Peer support network of early childhood educators committed to quality learning
Resource grants for classroom materials, equipment, and facility improvements
What does that mean for parents?
For parents, this means peace and mind in knowing that your child is enrolled in a program committed to quality. It's about understanding what quality looks like in the form of appropriate teacher-to-child ratios; learning activities that support each child's interests and development; safe, healthy, and engaging environments; and focus on overall child well-being. Research has shown that high-quality early learning experiences prepare your child for success in kindergarten and beyond!
