As a reminder, the body of your Assignment should be 3-5 pages.

Diversity Needs Assessment

Begin by visiting the US Census Bureau site and review the demographic information for your state.

Use this paragraph to describe the results that you found from the needs assessment in your community.

Based on the needs identified in your community, use this next paragraph to identify how potential children and families will be served with your program.

Use the final paragraph in this section to discuss how multiculturalism and diversity will be addressed with your program.

Mission Statement

For this section, create a clear and concisely written mission statement that describes the purpose and goals of your proposed program. A well-developed mission statement demonstrates to prospective clients and outside observers that this is a quality center with a purpose. Keep in mind the cultural, educational, and socioeconomic levels of the children and families you will serve.

Programming

For this first paragraph, use the NAEYC’s quality standards for serving young children to discuss how you plan to address one of the NAEYC standards. Identify 2-3 developmentally appropriate practices you will use to ensure program quality and compliance with this standard you selected.

For the second paragraph, use the NAEYC’s quality standards for serving young children to discuss how you plan to address a second NAEYC standard. Identify 2-3 developmentally appropriate practices you will use to ensure program quality and compliance with this standard you selected.

Quality Assessment

Begin this section by using the QRIS Resource Guide to find out your own state’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) for achieving highest quality.

Then, use this paragraph to describe the “levels” of quality and provide some examples of how you obtain the various levels.

Next, identify what objective quality rating scales will be used to measure your quality at your program, and discuss how each will be used.

Evaluation

For this final section, locate at least three professional sources from the PG library (such as the journal articles listed in the Unit 9 Readings). Be sure to use in-text citations and full references for these articles.

Begin this section by comparing two research-based quality-rating frameworks for evaluating early childhood programs for continuous quality improvement.

Finally, choose one of the evaluation measures you reviewed and describe three ways you can use it to ensure continuous quality improvement.
