Learn about the Early Learning Performance Funding Project and how your center can become a participant for the future. The project gives eligible, selected child care providers and their instructors an opportunity to earn additional compensation for improving school readiness program outcomes. To be eligible to participate, at least 30 percent of a provider’s birth-5 enrollment had to be children in the School Readiness Program. Nearly 900 child care providers applied to be part of the 2016-17 project; 479 were selected to participate. Each provider selected has been assigned to a group offering specific professional development. Click the link below for additional information and facts on the program.
