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 Hillsborough Child Care Licensing.
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.
Hillsborough Child Care Licensing 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.
