Staff Education and Qualifications. The first time you update your Program Profile you will be able to see a list of staff that have worked for your program. You’ll notice that there may be past employees that you will need to add an end date. Once “cleaned up” you will be able to keep your list current.

Program Profile Self Evaluation. Areas to evaluate include: Capacity, Program Type, Staff Benefits, Program Curriculum, Business & Professional Practices, Child Outcomes, Parent/Family Involvement and Health and Wellness. 

There is now a classroom detail section where you can identify each classroom, and assign staff members. Per YoungStar guidelines, each classroom must have one lead teacher.
