Abstract

It is very important to support our staff, families, and children to help them succeed as they transition into kindergarten. In this project, we provide appropriate training on Early Childhood Development to the staff and parents, utilizing the Head Start Outcomes and Kentucky Pre-School Standards. In this proposal, we will explain the importance of the development of a classroom portfolio, consisting of data, that will include: specific training information on skill building, materials to complete activities to enhance skills at home and school, screening results, Literacy scores, Creative Curriculum Documentation, Early Childhood Rating Scale (utilized in the STARS program), Instructional and Caring Contacts (utilized to monitor the amount of instruction conducted per classroom), digital photos of weekly classroom materials and activities, parent conferences and input, and data regarding trainings attended by staff. The outcome of the project is to provide high quality Early Childhood services to our families, by supporting our staff and parents. The development of the classroom portfolio will allow the consultant to review data and support the staff/parents in appropriate skill development.
