At the EPEL’s Fall Collaboration meeting on October 6th, 32 early childcare centers were honored for achieving Gold, Silver and Bronze licensing levels.
5 of our team members were there to pick up the award.
ExceleRate Illinois is a statewide quality recognition and improvement system designed to make continuous quality improvement an everyday priority among early learning providers. The program establishes standards for helping infants, toddlers, and preschool age children develop intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally. It provides a framework for early learning professionals to identify opportunities for improvement, increase their skills and take steps to make positive changes.
Every early learning provider who participates in ExceleRate Illinois makes quality a priority.
But the higher the awarded designation, the more each provider makes meaningful improvements to their program that better prepare children for school and life.
