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 approved the project for five consecutive years.
The project gave eligible, selected child care providers and their instructors opportunities to earn additional compensation for improving school readiness program outcomes. To be eligible to participate, a provider was required to meet minimum percentages of school readiness enrollment and not have any disqualifying licensing violations.
Nearly 3200 providers participated over the past five years.
