ECE Quality Improvement Project


Through the PreK-3 Initiative, MCOE supports quality improvement activities in 38 preschool programs that feed into the nine participating elementary. 

Quality Improvement plans are organized around:
  1. Early Learning and Development System
  2. The Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) framework
  3. The Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale (ECERS) 
  4. Anti-Bias in Early Childhood Education
High quality professional development activities and expert coaching are grounded in current brain development research, child development and place an emphasis on reflective practice.

For more information about this project, please contact Carol Barton, Early Childhood Education Project Coordinator at or (415) 499-5889
