The importance of successfully managing the ERSEA process cannot be overemphasized. Many programs find themselves either under-enrolled or with waiting lists too small to fill the vacancies that will occur during the year. Often, program staff must use a hurry-up approach to completing applications just before the new school year. This takes precious time away from actual services to children and families. Many problems arise because the ERSEA process has not been managed as effectively as it could have been.

This training builds on Levels One and Two, and is designed to assist programs to better track, monitor, and evaluate the overall ERSEA process and the systems that support it. Level Three focuses on providing participants with the right tools to successfully manage the ERSEA processes and achieve program enrollment and service delivery objectives such as:

  • Increase program capacity to meet and maintain full enrollment
  • Use technology to manage data, forms, processes, and reports
  • Design and use forms to record and track ERSEA processes
  • Design and use flow charts to assist programs in determining accountability at all levels
  • Monitor and manage process flow
  • Evaluate tools to analyze ERSEA processes
  • Define an ERSEA framework for planning overall ERSEA processes

This training is targeted for: ERSEA Team Members, Executive Directors, Program Managers, Key Management Team, and Child Care Partners

  • Develop strategies that will assist their program to track, monitor, and evaluate the ERSEA systems
