Falls City Public Schools Child Care Partnership/Sixpence

The daycare providers that are a part of this program will receive training, materials, and support to help them in their daily role. This grant provides a coach/teacher to offer guidance in achieving the grant goals.  Susan Johnson is the Sixpence Director, and Susan Witt is the Child Care Partnership Coach.

The Sixpence grants are also connected to Nebraska’s Step Up to Quality child care rating and improvement system. Step Up to Quality, has a collaboration between the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and the Nebraska Department of Education, which provides training and professional development, formal education and coaching opportunities to participating child care providers and their staff. The initiative assists providers in understanding and meeting accepted quality standards, and conducts assessment and data analysis for quality improvement. Step Up to Quality also gives parents the information they need to identify and choose quality care environments for their youngest children. Licensed child care providers involved in the Sixpence partnerships are required to be enrolled in Step Up to Quality and achieve a Step 3 rating on a 5-step quality scale by end of the third year of their Sixpence grant.

Since the Sixpence Childcare partnerships collaborate with Step Up to Quality, we see that all of the daycare and center-based programs go beyond the state licensing requirements.  By doing this all programs will better serve the needs of the young children and their families and will be able to prepare them for success in preschool then on into kindergarten.
