School Readiness

Early Learning Performance Funding Project

In 2014, the Florida Legislature approved a special pilot project to see whether specific training approaches improve how well children do in school readiness programs. The Florida Legislature has approved the project each year since then.

The project gives eligible, selected child care providers and their instructors an opportunity to earn additional compensation for improving school readiness program outcomes. To be eligible to participate, at least 20 percent of a provider's enrollment must be children in the School Readiness Program.

Nearly 1,000 providers applied to be part of the 2017-2018 Early Learning Performance Funding Project. Early learning coalitions are reviewing applications to determine which providers are eligible to participate. You can see more about the project on a special edition of WEDU Quest.
