         Forming Connections
Throughout the state’s stay-at-
home order, CCRC kept children engaged through a series of virtual play groups and virtual story time sessions. The experience helped children develop language and communication skills, use context and pictures to identify new words, engage in exploration and awareness of their surroundings, and develop an understanding of themselves, their community, and their culture.
Creating a Future in Early Care
CCRC engaged 285 current and potential child care providers this fiscal year, assisting 269 people with becoming licensed and 16 providers with expanding their license. In total, these interactions resulted in 64 program participants becoming newly licensed and eight participants expanding their licenses with CCRC’s help.
Building Skills
Across Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties, CCRC hosted 434 activities to promote child care provider professional development and quality improvement, including trainings, story time, playgroups, outreach events and one-on-one technical assistance activities.
Quality Start programs in both counties (QSSB and QSLA) are collaborations of early learning partners, educators, and champions working together to increase the quality of local early learning programs for our youngest children.
QSSB supported 297 programs, nearly 12,000 children, and 1,842 early childhood educators. After receiving professional development coaching, a majority of these early childhood programs realized increases in program quality. QSLA incentivized child care providers to support quality improvement efforts, offered opportunities for professional development, and professional coaching to maintain high quality standards.
Assisting license-exempt and license-seeking providers is especially important given the current global health crisis.
An additional total of 107 child care providers completed a total of 177 training classes and 2,243 hours of training.

Quality Start San Bernardino County (QSSB) is a collaborative of early learning partners, educators, and champions who are working together to increase the quality of local early learning programs for San Bernardino County’s youngest children through the development of a Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS). In 2015, these early learning partners came together to develop a strategic plan that guides the design, development, and implementation of the local QRIS. This informational brief outlines accomplishments from June 2019 to July 2020.
