Early Learning Connection for Quality Portfolio

The Early Learning Connection for Quality Improvement project is designed to engage child care providers in a coherent series of workshop experiences that are designed for new learning, self-reflection, action planning and implementation that contribute to elements of quality. A personal portfolio serves as documentation for the changes that occur, including a new sense of professionalism and commitment to self-selected improvements in the quest for new levels of quality. Completion of the project will result in an award of 25 hours of in-service.
