 CENTERS 
~ QUALITY ENHANCEMENT CENTERS ~
The First Steps Quality Enhancement Program assists child development centers in improving their overall quality. Each participating center is scored throughout the school year based on staff and administrative performance. Centers scoring above 80% are considered to be Centers of Excellence for having shown exemplary performance throughout the year. 
The Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership (EHS-CCP) program is a federally funded grant that works to provide Early Head Start services to private child development centers by creating stable, long-term, high quality childcare for children ages 0-36 months and working families with vouchers.
