This brief document profiles Maryland's Early Learning Support Network. The Network includes a group of early childhood centers in public schools in the state. The centers serve as training and observation sites for persons interested in improving the quality of their early learning programs. Two types of centers are involved: observation centers that provide opportunities for interested persons to observe high quality programs in operation, and support centers that provide field experiences for persons endeavoring to strengthen their knowledge and skill in areas related to the implementation of early childhood programs. Both types of centers were selected because they exemplify excellence, diversity, and effectiveness in the provision of educational programs for young children. Sections of the document provide: (1) an overview; (2) underlying premises; (3) objectives; (4) a statement of procedures for becoming involved with support centers, including the interested person's desire for and efforts at improvement, the observation and practice of improvement strategies, and the implementation and institutionalization of improvement strategies; and (5) a brief statement of procedures for contacting observation centers.
