Program Improvement and Support

The Program Improvement and Support Unit focuses on improving the quality of early care and education by encouraging programs to participate in the NAEYC Accreditation process. An ongoing support system for early care and education programs offers on-site individualized technical assistance, networking and training opportunities to assist in the pursuit of high quality through national accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).  Additionally, supports are available to all programs in the form of free workshops, training and technical assistance to guide improvement efforts. 


The unit also offers college-credit coursework and other professional development opportunities to improve the qualifications of Connecticut’s early care and education program administrators. These opportunities assist administrators in meeting the education qualifications criteria established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), as well as the requirements of the Connecticut Director Credential (CDC), which is often used to meet NAEYC’s requirements for program administrators.
