School Readiness Program Assessment
During the 2018 legislative session, the Florida Legislature passed a bill (HB 1091) that increases quality and accountability in the School Readiness Program. The Division of Early Learning has led the implementation of this legislation in partnership with local early learning coalitions. This legislation will ensure that School Readiness providers adhere to best practices in early education and child development while providing opportunities for additional funding.
Qualifying providers may receive a payment differential based on their Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS®) up to 10% for each care level
