Quality Early Education System (QEES)

The Quality Early Education System project is an innovative partnership between Hillsborough Community College and Hillsborough County Childcare Licensing. The project is designed to significantly increase kindergarten readiness by providing comprehensive support to the key people in the lives of young children, including teachers, center directors, and parents. QEES provides training and coaching in the areas of early cognitive, social, and emotional growth, as well as factors related to healthy and safe physical development. QEES also enables early learning professionals to receive training certificates and stackable credentials toward a post-secondary degree, and it provides training in business operations to center directors in areas such as budgets, finance, and management. We work with Hillsborough Community College staff to produce the QEES annual report with data visualizations and narrative that can tell the story of the project’s success to a variety of audiences.

Study of Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) Grants

We are a subcontractor to Abt Associates in this new project that will conduct interviews, surveys, and site visits to learn how states are using SSAE funds and getting evidence-based programs or practices into place. This project will also develop practitioner briefs to highlight practical information for strengthening programs funded through Title IV-A. The briefs will summarize elements of successful SSAE implementation and barriers to successful SSAE implementation.
