QUILT Partnership Checklist: Shaping a Partnership
The QUILT project developed this checklist to assist early education programs in developing strong partnerships that provide high quality, full day, full year comprehensive services to young children. Partners can use this tool to raise questions and prioritize critical issues to work together in building a partnership.
Part I Partnership Components
Part I identifies questions to consider when planning and developing a strong and sustainable partnership. Since the issues are interrelated, partners may approach the list in any order that works best for them. Use the checkboxes at the beginning of each question for prioritizing or grouping questions. Plan to eventually consider all items.
- 1. Systems
- Planning and Decision Making
- Record Keeping and Documentation
- Oversight and Continuous Program/Partnership Improvement
- Staff Development
- 2. Staff
- 3. Services
- 4. Resources
Part II State/Tribal Early Education Systems
Part II raises questions about the early education systems in the partners’ state or tribe to help partners understand decision making processes and systems in early education, the policies that affect partnerships, and key people to contact for assistance.
- 1. Decision Making
- 2. Child Care and Development Fund
- 3. Prekindergarten
