Program Quality

The Alliance is working across the community with adults – including teachers, caregivers, professionals and practitioners – to increase the quality of early learning programs.

The Program Quality Committee is working to elevate the quality of early childhood programs through the following strategies:

Strategy A: Texas Rising Star

Increase the number of early care and education programs into the Texas Rising Star (TRS) system and move current TRS programs into higher ratings

Strategy B: Pre-K and Kindergarten Entry Assessment Tools

Identify an approach, or approaches, for programs to use and coordinate on common Pre-K and Kindergarten assessment tools

Strategy C: Early Childhood Data System

Assist early learning programs and inform parents on the benefits of the Texas Early Childhood Data System
