VPK & Early Childhood Education and Our Families (learn more about our youngest learners) - Shared screen with speaker view
I am monitoring the chat. If you have a question, please raise your hand or type in chat.
We received a small part, but the majority of the CARES money has only applied to the VPK programs that also participate in SR.
The ELC’s notified us as money became available, but we were only eligible for funds during one phase of the many waves of money that were available. The centers that do not provide SR notoriously get the shaft monetarily. We do not get paid the same amount per child either.
Where can I find more information about the SR aspect? What is the barrier to adding that so this isn't a problem Stephanie?
This the School Readiness page from the OEL: http://www.floridaearlylearning.com/school-readiness
Tabitha- the SR component requires 100% more work to maintain your prof
School Readiness requires more than VPK programs. This is an example of why the early learning programs need better interconnectivity and similar accountability. Think back to the school readiness results from providers in the beginning of the presentation.
sorry- program is much harder to maintain.
Unfortunately due to the SR program being for economically challenged families it also becomes difficult to get regular attendance and you are not paid for children who do not attend.

Will that cover early childhood programs that are prior to VPK and SR?
ages 1-3 for example
I would love more information about this
are some vpk programs better than others and how are those identified to know a given program needs more assistance?
We are “graded” based on our assessments and readiness rates.
are the readiness rates public information?
They have to be.
