Winners are grinners ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The exhibition investigates the back slapping spirit of winning within Australian culture, while also revealing its darker complexities off the sporting field. Responding to the occasion of the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Winners are Grinners reveals that all that glitters is not gold, or silver, or even bronze! It features seven artists from Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and New Zealand, bringing a diverse range of perspectives and backgrounds to the exhibition. The participating artists work in a variety of mediums and represent a strong cross section of practice by emerging artists today. The exhibition displays water colour snap shots of employees of the month from Melbourne painter, Fiona McMonagle, miniaturised gulf war dramatisations played out across a mini golf course by Perth artist, Bennett Miller and a contemporary wheel of fortune sculpted from a Goodyear tyre by Melbourne-based, Mark Hilton. Perth's Marcus Canning explores the mythology of the win through a single channel projection of a glittering Mt Olympus constructed from golden trophies, while New Zealand artist, Wayne Youle, contributes beauty pageant sashes that bestow a different story on his Maori heritage. Sydney painter, David Griggs, creates a new painting installation framed around his recent residency in the Philippines, and the Brisbane based Indigenous artist Tony Albert draws us closer to home with his photographic and video works Our Cathy and I am, you are, we are Australians

A Count for Quality: Child Care Center Directors on Rating andImprovement Systems by Karen Schulman( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS)--a strategy to improve families' access to high-quality child care--assess the quality of child care programs, offer incentives and assistance to programs to improve their ratings, and give information to parents about the quality of child care. These systems are operating in a growing number of states--22 states had statewide qris and four additional states had qris in one or more of their communities as of 2010. Given that qris are used in a growing number of states and communities, it is helpful to examine the range of approaches these states and communities are taking in designing and implementing qris. It is also important to examine the opportunities and barriers for qris in achieving the goals of improving the quality of child care and increasing access to high-quality child care for families, particularly for the most vulnerable families. Qris can be a tool for improving the quality of care accessed by low-income families who cannot afford high-quality care on their own. To gain more insight into different strategies for shaping and implementing qris, the Center for Law and Social Policy (clasp) and the National Women's Law Center (nwlc) interviewed 48 child care center directors from nine states about their experiences with qris. The directors offered valuable perspectives on what is working in their qris and how the systems could be improved. The directors' observations indicate that qris work best when they help child care providers improve quality on an ongoing basis by providing financial, mentoring, and other support and when they effectively align with other high-quality early childhood and after-school systems. To that end, nwlc and clasp recommend that state and local policy makers: (1) Set quality rating standards that appropriately reflect elements essential to the quality of care; (2) Establish a quality assessment process that is reliable and responsive; (3) Provide sufficient, sustained incentives and support for improving quality; (4) Design qris to meet the needs of all children; (5) Educate parents about qris and high-quality care; and (6) Align qris with other high-quality programs and components within the early childhood system.

School-Age Children in Ccdbg: 2009 Update by Hannah Matthews( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The Child Care and Development Block Grant (ccdbg) is the primary source of federal funding for child care subsidies for low-income working families and to improve child care quality. Ccdbg provides child care assistance to children from birth to age 13. In fiscal year 2010, states received $5 billion in federal ccdbg funds. States are expected to contribute an additional $2.2 billion to draw down all federal funds. This fact sheet highlights key information about school-age children and ccdbg. These information include: (1) a third of children served in ccdbg are between ages 6 and 13; (2) More than half of school-age children in ccdbg are served in center-based care; (3) The ccdbg school-age earmark funds a range of services; and (4) Funds earmarked for school-age care comprise a small portion of ccdbg spending. (Contains 2 figures, 1 table, and 9 endnotes.)
Meeting the Early Learning Challenge: Supporting English LanguageLearners by Hannah Matthews( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The Race to The Top-Early Learning Challenge (rtt-elc) is designed to improve the quality of early learning and development and close the achievement gap for children with high needs. The Departments of Education and Health and Human Services define high needs to include children who are English learners, often referred to as English Language Learners (ELLs) or Dual Language Learners (DLLs). The Early Learning Challenge is an opportunity for states to direct their attention to the needs of this group of children who are often overlooked in policy conversations. The challenge for states in addressing the needs of ELLs in the Early Learning Challenge rests on gaps in research on the most effective early education practices for young ELLs and the current state of early care and education standards and policies related to ELLs. Still, strategies for how to most effectively reach and serve ELLs in quality early education exist and can be implemented. This paper presents strategies for creating and implementing a high quality rtt-elc plan that includes ELLs by addressing the following topics: (1) Data on ELLs; (2) Developmentally, Linguistically and Culturally Appropriate Standards; (3) Appropriate Assessments for ELLs; (4) Professional Development and Workforce Competencies and Knowledge for Working with ELLs; and (5) Access to High Quality Programs for ELLs. (Contains 12 endnotes.)
Early education programs and children of immigrants learning each other's language by Hannah Matthews( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Children from immigrant families are the fastest growing group of children in the United States. High-quality child care and early education opportunities will be critical to these children's success in school and in life. Yet, the early experiences of children in immigrant families are as diverse and varied as immigrant families themselves. While many immigrant families face numerous barriers to accessing high-quality child care and early education for their young children, these barriers are not insurmountable. The paper discusses state and local solutions to improving access for immigrant families and specific strategies and collaborations among providers, policymakers, and immigrant-serving organizations

Child Care Assistance in 2009. Spending Update by Hannah Matthews( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
At the beginning of 2009, with the country facing the worst of the economic crisis, the president and Congress understood that Americans needed help paying for child care to get back to work in the recession. As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, they allocated an additional $2 billion for the Child Care and Development Block Grant (ccdbg). This paper provides analysis of state spending on child care assistance in fy 2009 (the most recent year for which data are available) covering the period of October 1, 2008, to September 30, 2009, as well as national trends in child care spending in recent years. In fy 2009, states collectively received $7 billion in federal ccdbg funds: $2 billion in arra funds and $5 billion in regular 2009 appropriations. The infusion of federal arra funds in 2009 helped many states, which faced budgetary pressure and increased need, avoid cuts in their child care programs. In addition to ccdbg, states use funds from the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (tanf) block grant to provide child care assistance. States have the option of spending tanf funds directly on child care or transferring tanf funds to ccdbg. This paper provides information on ccdbg and tanf child care funds spent from fy 2009. This paper is based on information that states report to the federal government and may differ from analyses based on state fiscal year expenditures. State Child Care Expenditures (ccdbg and tanf Combined) and Monthly Average Number of Children Served (ccdbg), 2008-2009 is appended. (Contains 3 figures, 1 table and 10 endnotes.)
