Program Planning and Reflection Tool (PPRT)

The PPRT is designed to help programs at various stages of development identify where to focus planning, implementation, or enhancement efforts. By using this tool to thoroughly examine your program’s developmental progress in five key domains (Program Structure, Workforce, Program Evaluation, Equity and Policy & Financing), program leadership will be able to create a comprehensive growth plan that fits the program’s needs and goals.

Evaluation Plan Template

This document outlines the elements of a comprehensive IECMHC evaluation plan. Teams may write an evaluation plan as they design their own evaluations and seek funding for it, or they may request written evaluation plans if employing an external evaluator. This outline is intended to be used as a resource for teams seeking to understand what to include in a written evaluation plan. It is not strict guidance; rather it provides a starting point that teams may adapt to suit their goals. Ultimately, the goal is to gain clarity and group agreement on the key questions to be answered, the methods to be used to answer them, and the resources that will be dedicated to the undertaking.

Crosswalk of IECMHC and the Pyramid Model Coaching: Building Capacity in Early Childhood for the Promotion of Social and Emotional Health

It is essential that early childhood programs and practitioners have the skills to promote the social and emotional health (i.e., mental health) of young children. Young children’s social-emotional development sets the foundation for other cognitive and academic skills and for their future relationships. This document highlights and describes the unique and complementary aspects of two successful approaches early childhood programs can use to support children’s social and emotional skills. Infant and early childhood mental health consultation and the Pyramid Model can be used independently or together.
