Some examples of curriculum used byfamily child care providers include Redleaf Press, Creative Curriculum, and HighScope
Debra Kelly
We use Creative Curriculum and our providers use TS Gold online for entering observations and assessing children’s development. This system also produces outcome statistics of those assessments and providers create individual child action plans based on those outcomes.
Margie Wallen
Yes! Engage your state agency partners, esp. your state child care administrator, as you develop your application and ask them for a letter of support. And, as you implement the grant if its funded, meet frequently with your state systems leaders and other EHS-CCP grantees in your state to work on policy alignment and overcoming challenges
Debra Kelly
TS Gold is Teaching Strategies Gold a Creative Curriculum extension.
Donna Emmons
Your State Head Start Association is also a great resource if you choose to write a grant.
Jessica Sager
Yes! We all need to take time to celebrate our wins more often. :)
Debra Kelly
Yes, recruiting and an orientation before contracting.
Margie Wallen
There are many good examples of the spillover effects of EHS-CCP in the Reports section on the website. Also See this report by Child Trends on this topic at https://www.childtrends.org/publications/extending-the-benefits-of-early-head-start-child-care-partnerships-for-children-and-families
Margie Wallen
I also know of EHS-CCP grantees who do private fundraising to pay for things like diapers and formula for non-eligible children served in EHS-CCP settings
