  • Alignment between the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework and the California Preschool Learning Foundations (DOC)
    This document was developed by WestEd through a process facilitated by the California Head Start Collaboration Office in partnership with the California Head Start Association and the California Center of the Office of Head Start Training and Technical Assistance Network, and supports Head Start education managers and education supervisors by demonstrating the ways in which these two sources align with each other, and the ways in which they share similar goals for children in all areas of learning and development. The alignment of the Head Start Early Learning Framework with the California Preschool Learning Foundations provides a valuable resource to facilitate the coordinated and aligned functioning of all the components of education in an early childhood program–curriculum goals, teaching strategies, and assessment.
  • The Alignment of the California Preschool Learning Foundations with Key Early Education Resources
    This online publication shows the connections that the nine domains of the preschool learning foundations have with the content of the California Infant/Toddler Learning and Development Foundations, the California Content Standards, the Common Core State Standards, and the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework.
