What is Quality Early Care and Education?

When we think of quality early care and education there are several things that come to mind. Each of these things work together to form a quality child care program.

  • Staff Education: early childhood teachers have the training and knowledge to work with young children.
  • Learning Environment: the program has a variety of materials and activities for each age level that makes it possible for children to learn something new every day.
  • Leadership and Management: a quality program has to have sound business practices to ensure the childrens safety and early learning.
  • Family and Community Partnerships: Parents and community members are encouraged to be a part of the childrens learning process. Parents are engaged and treated like partners in their childs growth and development.
So, you may be asking yourself, why is quality early care and education important? Did you know that 90 percent of our brain develops before we reach kindergarten? Attending a quality child care program is important to children because what children experience before age five can affect the way their brains develop. Children who attend quality early care and education programs go to kindergarten ready to learn and are better prepared for school. They also develop skills early on that will help them throughout all areas of their life.
