Bright and Early: Coaching Increases the Quality of Early Childhood Programs
Banuelos, Noelle V.; Doerfel, Mariel K.; Stoffel, Rachael E.
Learning Professional, v40 n6 p50-53 Dec 2019
For nearly 15 years, Child360 (formerly Los Angeles Universal Preschool) has offered coaching services to early childhood education providers who serve children up to age 5 in public centers and family based childcare homes. These coaching services give educators the support they need to ensure their programs are places where children are happy and healthy, and where a love for learning is born. Child360's coaching model integrates research-based practices that promote teacher competency, confidence, and professional growth.To evaluate its practices, Child360 examined the effectiveness of its coaching model during the 2017-18 program year. Overall, teachers who received coaching improved their practices, and their programs saw increases in quality ratings from Quality Start LA, a tiered quality rating system that parents can use to make decisions about where to enroll their children.
