LEADERSHIP, DIRECTION, AND INTEGRATED RESOURCE MANAGEMENT THAT SUPPORTS SUCCESS FOR CHILDREN

SCHOOL READINESS: EVEN BEFORE CHILDREN ATTEND PREKINDERGARTEN, THEY GAIN FROM EXPERIENCES THAT HELP THEM BE READY FOR SCHOOL. THAT IS WHY SCHOOL READINESS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT PART OF EARLY LEARNING. THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE RECOGNIZED THAT WHEN THEY PASSED THE SCHOOL READINESS ACT TO HELP CHILDREN FROM LOW-INCOME FAMILIES GET THE SUPPORT THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN SCHOOL. WHILE HELPING CHILDREN PREPARE FOR SCHOOL, THE PROGRAM PROVIDES CHILD CARE SO A PARENT CAN WORK OR ATTEND A TRAINING OR EDUCATION PROGRAM.

VOLUNTARY PRE-KINDERGARTEN: PREPARES EARLY LEARNERS FOR SUCCESS IN KINDERGARTEN AND BEYOND. CHILDREN MUST LIVE IN FLORIDA AND BE 4 YEARS OLD ON OR BEFORE SEPT. 1 OF THE CURRENT SCHOOL YEAR TO BE ELIGIBLE. THE PROGRAM HELPS BUILD A STRONG FOUNDATION FOR SCHOOL USING EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS THAT ARE GEARED TO VARIOUS STAGES IN A CHILD'S DEVELOPMENT.

EARLY LEARNING PROVIDER FUNDING PILOT PROGRAM: IN 2014, THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE APPROVED A SPECIAL PILOT PROJECT TO SEE WHETHER SPECIFIC TRAINING APPROACHES IMPROVE HOW WELL CHILDREN DO IN SCHOOL READINESS PROGRAMS. THE PROJECT GIVES ELIGIBLE, SELECTED CHILD CARE PROVIDERS AND THEIR INSTRUCTORS AN OPPORTUNITY TO EARN ADDITIONAL COMPENSATION FOR IMPROVING SCHOOL READINESS PROGRAM OUTCOMES. EACH PROVIDER THAT IS SELECTED WILL BE ASSIGNED TO A GROUP OFFERING SPECIFIC PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
