The Quality Early Education System (QEES) is funded by The Children's Board of Hillsborough County.
QEES is designed to:
Streamline early learning professional development
Promote high quality early learning
Support early care educators/caregivers
Increase kindergarten readiness
The Quality Early Education System has four components to deliver services: HCC-Pathways, the Conscious Awareness Learning Model (CALM), Early Literacy Matters (ELM), and Business Management & Operations.
HCC-Pathways offers continuing education, professional development and on-site coaching on the foundations of early childhood education.
CALM provides universal training to early education providers and families in social-emotional learning using the Conscious Discipline® approach. The program builds the foundation for constructive problem solving and self-regulation, allowing children to be successful in their early years and ready for kindergarten.
The ELM program provides ongoing training for early childhood teachers and families. ELM provides a comprehensive three-tiered approach to literacy by mentoring and working with preschool children, teachers and families.
The Business Management & Operations team provides support and services focused on organizational and operational management practices to all licensed child care facilities and child care homes. The services will be offered through on-site coaching and training sessions, built on evidence-based practices.
