Single Source Procurement Administration of the Child Care WAGE$® National Model in Miami-Dade County
The Children’s Trust seeks to procure the services of an agency to implement the evidence-informed Child Care WAGE$® National model in Miami-Dade County, Florida. This program provides education-based salary supplements to low-paid early childhood educators to encourage their continued professional development and employment stability. Implementation of the Child Care WAGE$® National model has led to lower turnover rates of early learning educators, which provides greater stability and continuity of care for young children, as well as to early learning educators improving their education levels. This evidence and more is referenced on the Child Care WAGES® National website.
