Providers selected for 2015-16 Early Learning Performance Funding Pilot Project.
Last year's Early Learning Performance Funding Pilot Project was such a success that it was funded for a second year. Almost 700 child care providers with children in the school readiness program applied to be part of the project for 2015-16. On Thursday, 379 learned they had been selected to participate. Orientation and training webinars begin next week. Providers in the project get special coaching and training for their classroom teachers and incentives throughout the year when they reach certain goals. At the end of the program, providers are eligible for bonuses based on improving outcomes for children.
