In 2006, the Gates Foundation launched the Early Learning Initiative to improve the school readiness of Washington State's children through three main strategies: (1) development of high-quality, community-wide early learning initiatives in two communities; (2) enhancement of statewide systems that support early learning; and (3) support for implementation of promising practices. Both Early Learning Initiative demonstration communities are implementing a program called Partnering with Families for Early Learning (PFEL) as part of the home-based early learning (HBEL) services for the Early Learning Initiative. PFEL is a newly designed home visiting program that draws on several curricula, including Partners in Parenting Education and Promoting First Relationships. This brief provides an overview of the observation instruments and describes the content and quality of the observed PFEL home visits. (Contains 6 tables and 10 footnotes.)
