Dear Early Care and Education Partner,
Welcome to the Quality Counts Neighborhood Learning Network.
The United Way of Miami-Dade Center for Excellence in Early Education, in collaboration with Children’s Forum and Citrus Health Network, will implement the Quality Counts Neighborhood Learning Network. We are partners in jointly delivering services in the central region of Miami-Dade, where each of our offices is located.
The United Way Center for Excellence in Early Education is an innovative educational and professional learning initiative dedicated to elevating the quality of early care and education in Miami-Dade and beyond. Our vision is that all children will have access to the highest quality early care and education, so they can have the best possible start in school and in life. Similarly, Children’s Forum vision is to create and sustain quality child caring communities. This vision is supported by the belief that every young child can and should receive quality education and warm, nurturing, responsive care, particularly those children who are most vulnerable and at risk. Like United Way and Children’s Forum, Citrus Health Network’s mission is focused on the business of helping people. The goal of Citrus Health Network’s early childhood development services is to provide accessible and comprehensive early intervention services to children birth to five and their families to ensure that they develop healthy physically, socially, emotionally & are ready to succeed.
In this collaborative effort, the United Way will lead director and practitioner communities of practice, accreditation supports, and school readiness enhancements. Children’s Forum will lead on-site coaching that includes career advising. Citrus Health Network will lead child mental health supports. Our shared goal is to enhance the capacity of early care and education programs and professionals serving young children and their families.
Thank you again for your participation in Quality Counts!
