Quality Solutions

Thank you for considering LAUP’s Quality Improvement Solutions for your quality enhancement needs.

Over the past decade, LAUP has championed quality early education by supporting providers with quality ratings and program improvement solutions. Although others provide similar services across this market, the breadth and depth of our experience makes the difference.

We have helped over 130,000 children become better prepared for kindergarten and beyond. LAUP has conducted nearly 3,000 reliable observational assessments using the Environmental Rating Scales (ERS) and Classroom Assessment Scoring SystemTM1 (CLASSTM) tools*, while supporting over 700 early education providers, including centers, family child care homes and school districts in achieving continuous quality improvement. We provide direct support to teaching staff and directors through coaching, technical assistance, professional development as well as other customizable services for your program.

We have been on the cutting edge of Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS) since 2004. And in 2012, we were one of two organizations selected to implement LA County’s Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge program. We take pride in playing an integral role in developing and implementing the Quality Continuum Framework (QCF) used nearly all counties across the state of California.

The real question is how to use the available funds wisely. The best evidence supports the policy prescription: Invest in the Very Young.
