STARS CQI Planning and Application Support for Family Home and Center Based Programs CoP Deb Norris

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Child Development Division
Instructor: Victoria Ward

Work together with peers, SPARQS Quality Support Specialists, and CDD STARS team members to develop your program’s STARS CQI application for quality recognition in Vermont. A team of facilitators will guide you through each step of the STARS CQI process, review tools and resources, and share strategies. Participants will complete a STARS-approvable CQI Plan for their desired STARS level over 5 monthly sessions. Two virtual sessions will be held via Zoom. Three in-person sessions will be held at regional locations (Winooski, Waterbury, and Rutland). Family home and center-based child care programs at all STARS levels may participate. Sessions will cover STARS and CQI overview, adult-child interactions, family and youth engagement, responsive practice, data collection strategies, internal and external assessment tools and strategies, goal setting skills, Strengthening Families Framework™, Vermont Early Learning Standards, and developmentally appropriate practice.
