Raising the Quality of Early Learning & Care

We are Improving Quality

Many of Tuolumne County Preschools, Family Child Care Homes, and Private Centers have been working hard to improve the quality of their programs.

Professional Development

In 2021/22 Early Childhood Educators in Tuolumne County spent over 1,059 hours building their own capacity and improve their ability to care for our children and earned 62 college units in Child Development.

Developmental Screenings

All of our licensed private and public sites were able to participate in learning about Developmental Screenings, which taught both the providers and parents how to use the Ages and Stages Questionairre.

Social and Emotional Learning

Social and Emotional Learning is foundational to early education.  In 2021/22 our early educators spent 197 hours of coaching supports on how to help develop their program to aid in positive social and emotional development.


In a way to show continuous growth and standardize what is proven to enhance the quality of our early education system, a rating system was created. Search Rated Programs below.
