ECE Quality Improvement Project

Through the PreK-3 Initiative, MCOE supports quality improvement activities in 38 preschool programs that feed into the nine participating elementary. 

Quality Improvement plans are organized around:
  1. The California Preschool Learning Foundations
  2. The Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) framework
  3. The Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale (ECERS) 
  4. The Desired Results Developmental Profile for Preschool (DRDP-ps).
High quality professional development activities and expert coaching are grounded in current brain development research, child development and place an emphasis on reflective practice.
