All programs who serve preschool-age children will have the opportunity to use the Early Learning Assessment to improve and support the growth and development of children.
As of fall 2016, only programs serving children funded by Early Childhood Education (ECE) or Preschool Special Education (PSE) are required to use the ELA. Programs must use the 10-Required Learning Progressions and report on funded children.
Right now, any Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) 3-5 star rated programs may attend training on the assessment. Programs may begin using the assessment following successful completion of the training.
