QUALITY EARLY LEARNING

The goal of the Quality Early Learning program of the Home Run is to ensure every child in West Sacramento has access to affordable, quality, early learning. Home Run Early Learning Specialists support local early learning sites using a modified version of the California Quality Rating and Improvement System (Home Run QRIS). Early Learning Specialists also provide training and coaching to improve classroom instruction, and the Home Run offers funding to purchase educational materials.
