Each year, staff partner with the local public schools as part of the school district's Building Bridges program to create transition experiences for our becoming kindergarteners. Bright Little Scholars currently partner with the following schools:
Bright Little Scholars is a part of the EQUIP (Early Education Quality Improvement Program) Initiative. EQUIP assist STAR 2 providers attain (and sustain) STAR 3/4 through a diverse toolkit of assessments and coaching supports, while SELECT (Social Emotional Learning: building Efficacy, Competencies of Teachers) focuses on improving teacher interactions and practices to support children’s social-emotional development.
The BUILD Initiative partners with state and community leaders to promote equitable, high-quality child- and family-serving systems that result in young children thriving and learning. BUILD envisions a time when all children reach their full potential and when race, place, and income are no longer predictors of outcomes.
Our Program Director was apart of this action plan for quality improvement!
