QCC/TQIS Tribal Region
Tribal Child Care Quality Improvement System (TQIS) Region 11
The TCCAC’s Tribal Child Care Quality Improvement System (TQIS) Region 11 TCCAC implements a Tribal Child Care Quality Improvement System as the lead grantee of the Quality Counts CA Block Grant through the California Department of Social Services. Quality Counts California (QCC) is a statewide system of locally implemented quality improvement systems (TQIS), to connect providers, parents and families to high-quality early learning and care programs and systems, and ensures that infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children have quality early learning experiences in their local communities.
QCC Tribal Region 11 was developed specifically for Tribal Child Care to provide resources and support to Tribal early learning and care providers and programs so they can help enhance culturally relevant and appropriate early learning and care that will help children to grow and thrive. With this funding TCCAC supports Tribal early learning and care through individualized support, resources, training and technical assistance, mini grants to enhance quality in early learning programs, providing opportunities to network and learn together and to outreach to other CA QCC consortia, regional hubs, trainers, and coaches available at the local level to align equitable access for Tribal Child Care and Tribal early learning programming.
Some of the services and initiatives TCCAC conducts through our Tribal TQIS program are:
- Tools for Tribal Child Care programs to define and self-assess the quality of their programs
- Culturally relevant resources and trainings to increase the quality and health and safety of Tribal Child Care programs
- Annual Tribal Region 11 TQIS Conference
- Materials for programs and providers
- Access to mini grant funds for specific self-identified materials, trainings and resources to increase quality in Tribal Child Care Programs
