General Quality Support

Quality Support Coaches work closely with teachers and support staff (i.e. program administrators) to understand each program’s objectives, strengths, and challenges. Based on evaluated needs, a quality support coach guides and mentors the process of enhancing and improving the quality of the program. The coach stays connected with the provider through constant communication; ensuring providers have the information needed to be successful.

Quality Support Coaches work directly with you to:

  • Ask questions and understand your program needs
  • Acknowledge and evaluate your strengths
  • Facilitate trainings
  • Link you to additioal LAUP specialists and teams
  • Demonstrate teaching strategies by modeling
  • Provide supportive observation and feedback
  • Help you maintain a safe and appropriate preschool environment
  • Assist in implementing ideas learned in trainings
  • Engage in brainstorming activities designed to develop new and innovative ways to accomplish your goals
