Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) Goals
I feel it is very important to keep improving my facility year after year. Since becoming a member of Quality Counts Napa, I have been provided opportunities for staff trainings, information about curriculum tools, licensing support, professional development support, and facility funds for enriching my site. Quality Counts Napa has been a key provider to increasing my school’s growth and development for our students, families, and faculty.Preschool Director
