Write an Action Plan
Based upon your findings from using NAEYC’s Self-Assessment tool, create an action plan that identifies one area of improvement that you feel would make the most significant positive impact on the outdoor space or an area you feel is a safety concern. The action plan should include the following:
- Identified area of improvement (using the tool’s language)
- Your desired outcome/goal
- Potential challenges
- Measurement of progress
- Timeframe to accomplish goal
- List of materials needed
- Brief justification of how your action plan will move your program toward quality improvement
you will be using a portion of NAEYC’s Standards and Accreditation Criteria and Guide for Assessment (specifically, Standard 9B).
